Wellington Youth Awards Now Open

Issued: 
May 22, 2019

Nominations are now open for the inaugural Wellington Youth Awards.

These awards have been established to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of young people in Wellington across a range of areas.

There are eight award categories, recognising the importance of being a carer, overcoming difficulties, employability, volunteering, arts, trade and advocacy.

“Young people are making tremendous contributions to our communities in Wellington, and we often don’t recognise the great variety of ways in which young people contribute,” Mayor Alan Hall said.

“We hope that these awards will build a communal sense of awareness and pride in the contributions young people are making in our communities and encourage everyone to put in a nomination.”

Category descriptions and the conditions of entry can be found on the Youth Council page.

Nominations can be lodged easily online, or if you’d like a hard copy or more information call the Youth Coordinator on 1300 366 244.

Nominations close on 18 June 2019.
