Deputy Leader of The Nationals and Member for Euroa Steph Ryan is calling for nominations for the Victorian Young Achiever Awards for 2017.
Ms Ryan, who is also the Shadow Minister for Young Victorians, said the Young Achiever Awards recognised the achievements of young people who had worked to provide a service, program or project for young people that had resulted in positive, youth-led changes in a local community.
“It gives me great pleasure to call for nominations for the Victorian Young Achiever Awards for 2017," Ms Ryan said.
"I encourage everyone to use this as a chance to build our young people up and encourage them in their passions and pursuits.”
Ms Ryan said it was particularly important for young people from our regional and rural areas to apply.
“There are so many outstanding young role models in our rural communities who are by example encouraging their peers to develop leadership and life skills with a sense of pride and self-confidence,” Ms Ryan said.
“If people know of a local young person who is motivating young Australians in their chosen field of endeavour, then encouraging them to nominate for the Victorian Young Achiever Awards is a tremendous way of highlighting those achievements.”

Judging will take place on April 4, 2017 and the Awards Gala Presentation Dinner will be held on Friday May 26, 2017.
