Give a young person a pat on the back

Australia Day may seem a long way away, but now's the time to think about nominating our young people.

September 21 is the first day of the school holidays and the first day the Valley's youth will have a chance to nominate themselves or a friend for the 2014 Young Citizen Award.

Think about a young (under 25yrs) Clarence Valley resident who you might know through school, a community group, an event or sporting organisation. You might be aware of their good deeds or excellence in academics or sports, but should the whole community also be aware?

Mayor Richie Williamson said this was your chance to make sure our deserving young people get noticed.

"There is a lot to be proud of in the Clarence and our young people accomplish some outstanding achievements. They deserve to know we're proud of them," he said.

The Tech Box will be in Market Square, Grafton on Saturday 21 September from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. Come along, join in the fun and games and let us know about a Clarence Valley young person who deserves a 'good on you'.
