Over 130 people attended the inaugural International Youth Day Awards which saw 31 young finalists be acknowledged for their contribution to the Shoalhaven on Friday, 4 November 2016 at the Bomaderry Bowling Club.

The community event hosted by the Shoalhaven City Council Youth Advisory Committee emanated a warm and friendly atmosphere that showcased the talents of the future generation of the Shoalhaven.

The Youth Awards is an initiative of the Youth Advisory Committee which decided to celebrate the valuable contribution and achievements of the outstanding young people in our community through an awards ceremony.  The Committee aspired to highlight the great work that youth are doing in our area, as well as acknowledge young people who are quietly going about making a difference in our world. The awards aimed to honour their courage, resilience, determination, motivation, aspirations and spirit.

The event showcased young people who support, motivate and enrich the lives of others and encourage the well-being of our community.

Our tenant Maddie was nominated for the Inspiration Award and was Highly Commended in that category.

Well done Maddie, you should be very proud!
