The Victorian Young Achiever Awards

Nominations for the 2018 Victorian Young Achiever Awards are now open. If you know a young person who’s going above and beyond in their efforts to help their community, nominate them today.

The Victorian Young Achiever Awards acknowledge, encourage and promote the positive achievements of young Victorians up to 29 years of age. In 2018 the Awards will recognise the achievements of young people across ten categories ranging from Arts and Fashion to Community Service and Leadership. One of the category winners will be declared the 2018 Victorian Young Achiever of the Year. The Victorian Government is sponsoring the Group Achievement in the Community Award. This award recognises young people who have worked together as a group to provide a service, program or project for other young people, which is based on consultation and engagement with young people and has resulted in positive, youth-led changes in a local community.

Nominations close on the 18 December 2017, with the winners announced at a Gala Presentation Dinner in May 2018. For more information or to nominate a young achiever visit
