Nominations open for Young Achievers Awards


The Member for Stuart, Dan van Holst Pellekaan MP is pleased to advise that nominations for the 2017/18 Young Achievers Awards are now open.

The search is on to give a “pat on the back” to all young achievers, up to and including 29 years of age as of 31 December 2017, through entry in the Channel 9 Young Achievers Awards.

Mr van Holst Pellekaan is keen to see local young people who are achieving excellence or serving the community, nominated for the awards.

“We have so many very talented and community minded young people in the Stuart electorate who deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts,” Mr van Holst Pellekaan said.

“I encourage all community members to consider nominating a young person. These awards provide us with an opportunity to say thank you to our young people at a state level.”

The Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards encourage, reward and most importantly promote the positive achievements of young South Australians.

The winners will be announced at a Gala Awards Presentation on Friday, 11 May 2018. The winner of each of the 12 categories will be presented with a magnificent trophy, $1,000 from Axsys and a $1,000 Bartercard account.

The ultimate winner, the Premier’s Channel 9 Young Achiever of the Year, will receive an additional $2,000 from Axsys, along with another $1,000 Bartercard account, a state trophy and a holiday package provided by Hilton Hotels.
