Seven News Young Achiever Awards VIC

Every day, right across our state young Victorians from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences are contributing to their community and helping those around them. Through their ideas, skills, creativity and resilience young people are making Victoria an even greater place to live.

The Andrews Labor Government believes every young person should have the opportunities and support they need to reach their full potential, including those who face disadvantage.
Our Government is listening to young people and making sure they are part of the decision making process. The Youth Policy: Building Stronger Youth Engagement in Victoria demonstrates our commitment to engaging with young people and embedding their voices in building an even better Victoria.

I am pleased to again sponsor the Victorian Government’s Group Achievement in the Community Award. This award acknowledges young people who have collaborated and worked together to create positive, youth-led changes in their local community.

These awards provide a chance to recognise the outstanding work of many young Victorians and to celebrate their achievements. While these young people will be our future leaders and change makers, I am delighted that we can recognise their efforts and achievements now.
As Minister for Youth Affairs, I encourage Victorians to nominate a young person they know for an award, so that we can recognise and celebrate their positive achievements and contributions to our state.
