Achievers to gain recognition
Nominations for the 2017 WA Young Achiever Awards have opened and Port Hedland residents are urged to nominate inspiring role models.
The initiative, run by Awards Australia, rewards young people younger than 30 for their positive achievements and dedication to inspiring others.
Last year, Port Hedland youngsters Jesse Pawloff and Neryssa Brown were nominated for the Community Service and Volunteering Award by co-workers and friends, and acknowledged for their outstanding contribution and positive impact on others.
The awards span a wide variety of categories, with $1000 prize money and a trophy up for grabs.
The 2016 WA Young Achiever Award went to Elizabeth Brennan, 29, of Wongan Hills.
Nominations for the awards are open until January 23.

Neryssa Brown was nominated for the awards last year for her leadership with the Youth Involvement Council.
