Nominate now for Young Achiever Awards


Member for Stuart, Dan van Holst Pellekaan, is pleased to advise nominations are now open for the Young Achievers Awards.

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 2019, through entry in the 2020 7News 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,” he 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 awards encourage, reward and most importantly promote the positive achievements of young South Australians across 12 award categories, including the Regional Service Award and Aboriginal Achievement Award.

The winners will be announced at a gala awards presentation dinner in 2020 and they will receive some great prizes, while every nominee will have a media release prepared about their achievements and will receive a certificate.
