Young people can win $2000

DO you know a young person who is making a positive difference in the Clarence Valley?

Nominations are now open for the 2015 National Youth Awards, which celebrate the achievements and contributions of young Australians aged 12-25

Federal member for Page Kevin Hogan urged those thinking about nominating to act now.

"It's important to celebrate the achievements of our young people who are making a lasting, positive difference in their communities," he said.

"Young Australians are doing this everyday by volunteering in their local communities and these young people deserve to be recognised for the valuable contribution they are making to their local communities."

There are seven award categories-six of which recognise individuals, and a media award that celebrates positive news reporting about young people in Australia.

Each of the six individual category winners will receive $2000, a trophy and a certificate, while the winner of the Youth in Media Award will receive a trophy and certificate.

Applications for the 2015 National Youth Awards close on November 27.
