15 September 2017
Nomination for the 2017-18 Victorian Young Achiever Awards open today, Member for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Nationals Steph Ryan said.
Ms Ryan, who is also Shadow Minster for Young Victorians, said the awards were the perfect opportunity to recognise Victoria’s young people and their contribution to the community.
“The Euroa electorate and Victoria more broadly is fortunate to have so many hard working, talented and community-minded young people,” Ms Ryan said.
“I am fortunate to meet many as I travel around the state and am so often blown away by what they are achieving.
“These awards are an opportunity to say thank you and to recognise their efforts.
Ms Ryan said the aim if the awards is 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 in their life,” Ms Ryan 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.”
“Previous winners and finalists from regional Victoria have included Mark Green of Wodonga, Isaiah Firebrace and Amy Whitten from Echuca and Jessi McEwan from Morwell.
“I’d be very excited to see a young person from the Euroa electorate recognised this year!”
Nominations are open from today and must be received by 18 December, 2017.
