Queensland Young Achiever Awards
Hi everyone, my name is Chern’ee and I was the winner of the 2017 Kennelly Constructions Aboriginal Achievement Award in the Queensland Young achiever awards.
These awards bring together many inspirational and hardworking youths from all walks of life.
Do you know someone who has achieved amazing things in their community or around Australia? If so nominate them for the 2018 Queensland Young Achiever Awards.

Hey guys its Keely Johnson here. I was nominated for the LGIA Super Community Award, and I was lucky enough to win it and I didn’t think that I would have hope of winning such a prestigious award. You wouldn’t believe how amazing it is to get given that title. And I even got to win the people’s choice and that was just an extra top on the cake.
So please get in it’s an amazing award, and just to have the privilege to have the title for the year. You meet some great friend’s; I’ve met friends that I’ll be keeping for a very long time. This is Keely Johnson, make sure you get in and get those nominations done!

"Upon hearing about the Queensland Young Achiever Awards and being encouraged to submit my details, I'll be honest and say I was a little apprehensive. With so many impressive awards organisations and categories around, I've never really thought that my efforts justified a submission. I've been so focused on 'doing' the work over the past few years (and I've been fortunate to build a great little company in that time), but I also believe that many of us rarely stop to reflect on what we've achieved. However after taking a look at it, you only need to see the Queensland Young Achiever Awards partner brands and sponsors, the quality of the nominees and finalists, the ceremony, and then the flow on effect after the announcement of the winners.
It's also great to see big brands getting behind the Queensland Young Achiever Awards, and supporting the next generation. Industry awards such as these provide the bridge that humanises brands.
Since winning the iFly online award just 10 days ago, I've been approached for speaking opportunities, and the award has provided an impressive amount of credibility. I've been amazed at the number of contacts that have surfaced to pass on congratulations (driving new conversations)."
