A chance to recognise our young achievers

Nominations for the 2017-18 Victorian Young Achiever Awards are now open.

The Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy MP said the awards were the perfect opportunity to recognise Victoria’s young people and their contribution to the community.

“The Lowan electorate and Victoria more broadly is fortunate to have so many hard working, talented and community-minded young people,” Ms Kealy said.

“I am fortunate to meet many of them as I travel around the state and am often blown away by what they are achieving.

“These awards are an opportunity to encourage our local young people and give them a boost in confidence to pursue their passions”, she said.

Nominations are being sought across a number of categories including arts and fashion, small business, community, social impact, health and leadership.

There is also an inspirational TAFE student award this year.

Ms Kealy said the aim of the awards was to encourage, reward and promote the positive achievements of young Victorians.

“Young people up to the age of 29 are eligible to be nominated and I encourage everyone to consider taking this opportunity to recognise a worthy young person that they know,” Ms Kealy said.

“I’d be very excited to see a young person from the Lowan electorate recognised this year”, she said.

Nominations are now open and must be received by 18 December, 2017.
