Nominations now sought for WA Youth Awards
■ Vince Catania MLA is calling on residents to nominate outstanding young people in the Pilbara for the WA Youth Awards 2015.
This year six award categories are open to honour and recognise young people.
The winner will have the opportunity to travel throughout WA to participate in youth-related events and activities as WA’s youth ambassador.
Mr Catania said anyone aged between 12 and 25 making an extraordinary contribution to their community and people around them could be nominated for the awards.
“We have a tremendous pool of talented and inspirational young people here in the North West Central region that I believe are very worthy of nomination,” he said.
“Growing up and living in regional WA brings different challenges and experiences to our young people, who often achieve fantastic outcomes for their communities and each other that go unnoticed.”
Nominations must include a maximum 1000-word summary outlining the achievements of the nominee to be submitted before Friday, October 2.
