The Seven News Young Achiever Awards Patron's Message:
I am delighted to be Patron of the Queensland Young Achiever Awards and to have the honour of presenting the award for the 2019–20 Queensland Young Achiever of the Year. Every day I see remarkable young people leading the way and I am buoyed with confidence for the future of our state when I see the contributions young people are making to our community. I am pleased to see the outstanding talent among this year’s nominees.
The Queensland Youth Strategy was launched at this event last year. It sets out government’s vision and commitments to support young people to look to the future and see limitless possibilities.
As Minister for Youth, I am committed to harnessing the ideas and enthusiasm of young people and involving them in the design of policy and programs that affect them. Young people have an enormous and invaluable contribution to make in shaping our state’s bright future.
Congratulations to this year’s nominees and award winners. It gives me great pleasure to support the Young Achiever Awards in recognising the leadership, dedication, and pursuit of excellence among young people across Queensland.
