Following the success of the inaugural event last year, nominations are now being taken for the 2020 Wellington Youth Awards.
The awards are open to any young person aged between 12 and 25 who live, work or study in the Wellington Shire, or have done so in the past 12 months.
With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting everyone’s lives at the moment, Wellington Shire Council Mayor Alan Hall said there was no better time to show some appreciation and identify a young person in the community who is doing or has done a great job.
“The awards are a great opportunity to showcase the amazing things young people in Wellington are achieving,” Cr Hall said.
“We are blessed to have some truly talented, compassionate and smart young people in Wellington and this is your opportunity to make sure they are recognised for their achievements.”

- Arts (musician, visual or performing arts)
- Phoenix (someone who has overcome adversity)
- Role Model
