The National Youth Awards is an Australian Government initiative that is in keeping with the original intention and purpose of National Youth Week—to celebrate, acknowledge and recognise Australia’s youth. The Awards acknowledge the outstanding achievements by young people on behalf of young people.
It is official— the NYA 2014 winners have been crowned.
Senator the Hon. Scott Ryan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Education officially announced this year’s winners at the Awards presentation dinner last night in Canberra. This year’s entries were particularly difficult to judge and the Selection Panel did an excellent job in selecting the winners and finalists. Congratulations to our winners and finalists—you are all making a difference for young people across Australia.
Check out Senator Ryan’s media release to find out more about the announcement of the 2014 NYA winners.
