Youth Mayor Emilee Stewart said the young people of Kalgoorlie-Boulder are doing extraordinary things and should be recognised and celebrated for their efforts.

“The Youth Awards provide an opportunity for our exceptional young leaders and service organisations to be recognised for all they do in our community.”

“I’m sure that there will be many nominees this year. There have been so many great initiatives taking place for young people in the past year, and I think it’s important to shine a spotlight on these accomplishments and the people involved.”

The judging criteria for nominations will consider factors such as demonstrated leadership on community issues, excellence in work or study, significant contributions to the local community and/or culture, positive influence on the lives of young people, and other noteworthy achievements or contributions.
