Celebration of Local Young People

AROUND 200 people gathered to celebrate the achievements and contributions made by young people in the community at the Alpine Shire Youth Awards on Friday, 7 September at Mount Beauty Community Centre.

72 young people from across the Shire were nominated for their academic, sporting, and artistic achievements, for their contributions to the community or workplace and for endurance and persistence.

Alpine Shire Mayor Ron Janas said the quality of nominations was extremely high, making it very difficult for the judges to select only one winner for each category.

“It is gratifying to have such a wealth of talented and community-minded young people living in the Alpine Shire,” he said.

Manager Economic and Community Development Elaine Burridge thanked all of the community groups and local businesses who have supported the Youth Awards by sponsoring a category.

“This is a great way for local people to acknowledge the value that young people have in our community,” she said.

“Also congratulations to the Youth Awards Committee, a group of five young people from Mount Beauty, who worked tirelessly to plan and deliver the evening under the guidance of our Youth Projects Officer.”
