Lithgow Youth Awards 2019
Thanks to a Youth Opportunities Grant from the NSW State Government, Council has been able to launch the region’s first Lithgow Youth Awards.
The awards were initiated through engagement between Youth Council and Council’s Community Development team who wanted to highlight the valuable contributions that young people make in our community; as well as to implement recommendations from Council’s Youth Strategy.
Youth Councillor and award organiser Elyse Hudson said “The categories are a bit different to your usual awards. We felt it was important to not just recognise the highest achieving person; but those who continually put in the effort to support community activities such as sport referees, the backstage production crew or the volunteers at the fundraising stall.”
There are four awards categories that a young person 12-25 years old can be nominated or self-nominate for:
- Community Spirit Award
- Contribution to the Creative and Performing Arts
- Contribution to Sports
- Young Employee of the Year.
“The launch of the awards is exciting as they will showcase the many outstanding contributions of our young people ranging from community volunteering, sports coaching or perhaps even tech support for one of the areas fabulous productions,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Clr Ray Thompson.
Nominations are now open for the Lithgow Youth Awards 2019. The awards showcase the great contributions our local young people make to the Lithgow region. Nominations close Friday 22nd February. Nominations can be made via Council’s website.
