Youth Recognition Awards

Welcome to the Youth Recognition Awards, celebrating extraordinary achievements!

You can nominate someone you know between the ages of 10 and 25.

Conceived of and run by the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) – a group of young leaders who meet weekly at The Corner Youth Centre, the awards shine a spotlight on remarkable young individuals who are making a difference in their communities.

The YAC came up with the idea for the awards because they believe it’s time we honour the contributions of young people in our community. There are so many who give back, whether through volunteering, environmental stewardship, leadership, or supporting mental health and wellbeing.

Nominations are open until 16 August 2023
