Awards to showcase young talent

Strathbogie Shire Council will be showcasing the talents of its young people with the opening of applications for its Strath-Logies Victorian Youth Week Awards 2020.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Amanda McClaren said the inaugural Strath-Logies Victorian Youth Week Awards will shine a spotlight on awesome young people aged 12 to 25 within the Shire.

“We have such amazing young people within the Strathbogie Shire and this event is our chance to both recognise and celebrate them,” she said.

“Strath-Logies is us having a little fun and play on words, but we are seriously excited to be providing this platform for young people with the support of Victorian Government’s Youth Week Grant funding.

Cr McClaren said the Strath-Logies had five distinct categories young people could enter, each with a $500 first prize.

“The awards are broken up into Community Champions, Emerging Artists, Environmental Warriors, Young Entrepreneur and People’s Choice Award,” she said.

She said young people were encouraged to submit an online application in written format or submit a video application.

“These applications will be reviewed by a panel of people including youth committee members, members of the youth team and Shire staff members relevant to each of the categories,” she said.

“We are looking forward to this event being a great success within the community and hope to be able to host it again in the coming years.”

Nominations are open until further notice.
