Nominate now for Youth Awards

IT’S not too late to nominate a young person for the local National Youth Week Awards, but you need to get in quickly.

Nominations for the Warwick and Stanthorpe National Youth Week Awards 2011 were extended and now close on Monday, March 7.

“We extended the nominations because so many people were dealing with flood clean-up,” said Southern Downs Regional Council’s Warwick Community Youth worker, Bonita Tyler.

“Now there’s just a few days left to get your nominations in and recognise a young person you know for their contribution to the local community.

“You can nominate someone aged between 12 to 25 years for their outstanding efforts.

“They should be someone you think has made a contribution to the development of the local community and the people in it.”

Nomination categories include sporting, community volunteer, young change makers, disabilities, Indigenous, music, trainee of the year, apprentice of the year, customer service award, young person of the year.

Forms are available from www.southerndowns.qld.gov.au or from the Warwick Community Youth office at Warwick Town Hall or Community Development Services office in Stanthorpe.

The awards will be presented at a special evening followed by a concert in Stanthorpe on April 1 and Warwick on April 8.

The awards are sponsored by Community Development Service Stanthorpe, the Southern Downs Regional Council, the Department of Communities and headspace Southern Downs
