7NEWS Young Achiever Awards VIC

2021 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards
Patron’s Message

Young people bring strength, energy and optimism to Victoria. They are leaders in our schools, universities, TAFEs, workplaces and communities. They are making Victoria stronger, fairer and more sustainable.

The Victorian Government recognises that our young people are not only the leaders of tomorrow – they are the leaders of today.

In the face of unprecedented challenges over the past 18 months, young people have shown incredible innovation, resilience and compassion. Their contributions will continue to have a lasting impact on their peers, their communities and our state.

The annual Victorian Young Achiever Awards provides a platform for our young people to be recognised for their outstanding leadership, noble efforts for a worthy cause, or dedication and success in their chosen field.

As Awards Patron I encourage all Victorians to consider nominating an extraordinary young person for an award and to champion and celebrate the great young people of Victoria.


The Hon. Ros Spence MP
Minister for Youth
