Parents, carers, community group leaders, teachers and mentors, are encouraged to nominate Canterbury-Bankstown’s worthiest young people, for the 2018 Youth Awards.
This year, youth can be nominated in six categories:
Mayor Khal Asfour said there were a number of unsung young heroes who significantly contribute to the City day-in day-out.
"Our youth do some amazing work in our community that has an overwhelming positive influence on others around them," Mayor Asfour said.
"So, it is important to acknowledge them and give them credit where credit is due."
One of last year’s recipients was Imogen Wallace, who is a full-time dancer.
"The awards were a great way to showcase the way I was giving back to the arts community locally," the 17-year-old Padstow resident said.
After excelling in ballet and contemporary dance, locally and Australia-wide, Imogen is now off to Scotland to start a three-year course at the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, while also finishing her Higher School Certificate.
"I would encourage all local youth to have a go and to talk about their achievements and successes. We have a lot to give back to our community and I think that’s really important to celebrate," she said.
Winners of each category will be chosen by the Canterbury-Bankstown Youth Reference Group and receive a cash prize of $200 at an awards ceremony in October. Finalists will also receive a $50 cash prize.
Nominations, including self-nominations, can be completed online at cb.city/youth or call 9707 9605. Applications close Friday 5 October.
