Recognition awards and design competition for youth extended

Both the dates for the Youth Recognition Awards and Coastal Protection Sign Design Competition have been extended for a few more weeks and will now close on Tuesday, April 21.

Mayor Des Noll said, “During these very unusual times, we thought it would be a good opportunity to provide more time for the community to consider who would be a worthy recipient of our youth awards.

“It only takes a short time to complete the nomination, yet it is a gesture that is so valued by the recipient, especially in the current situation", Mayor Noll added.

“No matter whether you are a parent, friend, employer, teacher or involved with youth in sport or other activities, this is an opportunity for you to nominate someone you feel is worthy. All nominees will receive a certificate, while each category winner will also receive an engraved glass plaque as well as a cash prize of $200.”

“It has also been decided to give our local youth more time to come up with some great designs for the Coastal Protection Sign competition,” he said.

“We’ve also broadened the eligibility of the design competition. Now it’s open to all youth up to the age of 25.

“So, here’s another good opportunity to keep the kids occupied whilst at home and they can even submit their entry online,” Mayor Noll concluded.

The 2020 Wattle Range Youth Recognition Awards are being made possible by the generous support of TDC Livestock & Property, Glen Carron Transport, Kimberly Clark Australia (Millicent Mill) and the Medical Clinic Millicent.

Further details and entry forms are available from Council’s website
