Young South Australians up to the age of 29, who are doing extraordinary things academically, in their careers or through contributions to the community, could become the next Channel 9 Young Achiever of the Year.
The Awards, sponsored by Allianz, offer individual prizes to the value of $2,000 each, across 10 categories including science and technology, sport and rural health. There is also an additional $2,000 on offer for the 2016 Premier’s Channel 9 Young Achiever of the Year.
Allianz’s Managing Director, Niran Peiris said the awards showcase the contributions young people make in their community.
“If you know a young person who is doing great things, nominate them now. We want to celebrate their achievements and highlight how young people are making our communities better each and every day,” said Niran.
“Many of our past winners have gone on to become important leaders in the community.”
The current Channel 9 Young Achiever of the Year, Marcellus Enalanga said recognising young people can make a difference to their self-worth.
Marcellus, who volunteers with Country Health SA and is a member of the SA Youth Parliament, was recognised for his contribution to a youth engagement strategy in conjunction with Aboriginal Health Workers.
“We are so proud to support the work of young people like Marcellus and other winners who have gone on to make an impact in the areas of science and technology, leadership, community service and the arts,” Niran said.
Nominations are open until 24 January 2017 and are available at www.bit.ly/sayaa website.
