Whitehorse City Council’s Young Person of the Month Award celebrates the achievements of young people who have excelled in the areas of learning, arts and culture, sport or community participation.
Award winners receive a JB Hi-Fi gift voucher, feature in an article in Council’s publication, the ‘Whitehorse News’ and may appear on Council's social media channels.
The Whitehorse Young Citizen of the Year winner is chosen from the previous year’s monthly winners and is announced at Council’s annual Australia Day celebrations.
It is compulsory that the nominee also complete their authority form ( PDF 522.32KB).
The nomination form makes sure a wide-range of young people can be nominated. Some sections may not be relevant to the young person you are nominating. However, please complete as many of the relevant questions as possible. Read the criteria for nomination before preparing your submission.
