Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards

Premier's Message

Hon Jay Weatherill MP

The Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards program – which in 2017 is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its founding – is a tremendous way of rewarding and further encouraging exceptional South Australians aged up to and including 29.

As Patron of the Awards, I believe the program fosters leadership, motivates young people to fulfil their potential and creates role models.

I welcome the fact that, this year, there will be a new award for Community Service, as well as a Create Change category that recognises the growing number of young people leading initiatives that promote positive change.

If you know of a young South Australian who is excelling in his or her chosen field of endeavour – and in the process is making ours a richer State – please consider nominating that person in one of the ten Award categories.

I commend the organisers and sponsors of the Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards and I look forward to the announcement of the winners in April 2017.

Hon Jay Weatherill MP
Premier of South Australia
