The annual Boroondara Youth Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the exceptional young people in our community.
Young people (aged 10 to 25 years) and youth organisations can be nominated across 6 different categories:
- Environment and Sustainability
- Creative Arts
- Inclusive Program
- Community Work (professional or volunteer)
Last year, 13-year-old, Evie Flynn was awarded in recognition of her passion for the environment and sustainability. She believes that change starts on a local community level.
“No matter how small, community involvement and taking environmental action is very worthwhile. Not only will you get to know your neighbours and people who live in your area, you also get to work towards a great cause,” says Evie.
“Local action is where it all starts – if enough people get involved in a petition to plant more trees, or a recycling program, it will start a chain reaction, and soon everyone will be doing it.”
If you know a young person or organisation that deserves to be recognised for their role in contributing to a safer and more resilient community, you can nominate them now!
