The awards are open to young people aged between 12 and 25 who live, attend school, work or train in the Strathfield local government area.
The Youth Achievement Awards are open for youth who deserve recognition for their contributions to society in a number of fields.
“It is vital for us to commend our young residents when they achieve positive results. It is important to remember that all achievements are worth celebrating. These awards provide us with an opportunity to encourage the youth, our future leaders, to strive for greatness throughout their lives”, Mayor of Strathfield, Councillor Ok said.
