Young Canberra Citizen of the year award

The Young Canberra Citizen of the Year Awards (the Awards) is an annual celebration that was established in 1989. These Awards recognise individuals and groups of young people aged between 12 and 25 years who have made a significant contribution through their personal endeavours, or who have been actively involved in the ACT community in areas such as community work, sport, education, science, culture, the arts or the environment.

The Awards also seek to acknowledge and celebrate significant personal achievements of individual young people.
