The Young Achiever Awards acknowledge, encourage and most importantly promote the positive achievements of all young people throughout Australia up to and including 29 years of age as of 31st December each year.
No achievement is too small (or big!) and ALL young people should be applauded for their positive impacts on our local and wider communities.
When hard times hit or disaster strikes, our selfless young men and women often make the difference by giving their guidance, encouragement and much needed support.
Volunteers spend their time offering friendship, hope and inspiration to the disadvantaged and those who need it most.
The Community Service Award applauds our unsung heroes, acknowledging those young people who are passionate in putting the needs of others first.
A Gala Dinner is to take place on Friday 20th March 2020 in Sydney where Winners of each category will be announced. There will also be a People’s Choice Winner through voting on the Social Media 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards NSW & ACT page.
“I am so exceptionally honoured, extremely humbled and a little overwhelmed to receive this incredible recognition. I would like to thank everyone who supports myself and my family: we are all part of a fellowship on a journey to make a difference. The work I do is always inspired by Dainere and is to ensure that no other children or families have to suffer from this truly malicious and cruel disease like Dainere our and family have. There is so much more to do to elevate awareness of the disease and the symptoms for earlier diagnosis and to see research reach a point where the best treatments and clinical trials are available to all in Australia, the devastating side effects of treatment are lessened, that children can live a healthy and productive future and a cure becomes a reality. Everyday, I am committed to taking steps and working towards Dainere’s visions and my own to take action, give hope and create change for every child in Australia diagnosed with a brain tumour”.
