Nom­i­na­tions now sought for WA Youth Awards

Pilbara News - - Education - Court­ney Fowler

■ 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.
