Seven News Young Achiever Awards VIC

2019 Victorian Young Achiever Awards
Patron’s Message

In my role as Minister for Youth, I’m fortunate to have the chance to visit communities right across our state – and in each one I meet diverse young people full of energy and purpose.

Young Victorians are committed to making positive change – and they’re leading the way in making our state an even better place to live.

Our government values all young people for who they are, and for their skills and achievements – as community members, students, workers, entrepreneurs, changemakers and volunteers.

I want to congratulate every nominee in the Victorian Young Achiever Awards for the positive contributions you have made and wish you every success for the future.

You are not just the leaders of tomorrow, you are leaders today. If you volunteer in your community, or you advocate for a cause – that’s leadership.

Because even the smallest actions can have a big impact.
