Youth Awards

The Youth Awards recognise and celebrate young people who are making significant contributions to their communities. Young people aged 12 to 25 years who live, study or work within the Mildura Rural City Council area are eligible to be nominated. 

Nominations for the 2020 Youth Awards are now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a worthy young person!  

Due to the current health restrictions in place, the Youth Awards Dinner planned for 29 April has been postponed. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of the 17 young people who have been nominated at an Awards Function, with details to be announced at a later date.
