The 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards is about celebrating young people, promoting positive stories and role models for the community, whilst giving them a platform to shine and follow their dreams.
We are currently receiving nominations for hundreds of young Aussies, right around the country and it has been absolutely brilliant to read about their achievements and inspirational stories.
Whilst all our applicants are amazing, just as any awards program, not everyone can make it through to the Finalist stage. There’s a rigorous judging process for each of our state/territory programs, that results in four different announcements:
1) Semi Finalists – the shortlisted selection of nominees (maximum 10) in each category, for further consideration
2) Finalists – from the pool of Semi Finalists, the top 3-4 candidates in each category
3) Winners – there can be only 1 winner in each category
4) Young Achiever of the Year – from the category winners, 1 is selected as the state/territory “overall” winner
This process takes over 4 weeks and involves typically 30+ people…and that’s just for one state/territory program!! So in total we require over 210 judges to be involved!!
As such, we are putting out the call for those who are passionate about supporting young people, to register to become a judge in the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards.
We currently have opportunities for judging positions in each in each state/territory of Australia and we need your help!
As a thank you to our judges, we provide a free ticket to attend our prestigious Awards Presentation events, which really brings the experience full circle.
So if you’d like to be part of an incredibly rewarding volunteering and networking experience, that looks great on your resume and LinkedIn profile, whilst giving back to the community…please register here.
If you qualify, we’ll be in touch with further information and a formal invitation for you to take part.
