Do you know someone aged 29 or under who deserves to be recognised for their passion and dedication? If the answer is yes, you should nominate them for the  2016-17 Tasmanian Young Achiever Awards. 

Nominations are now open for the awards, which celebrate, encourage and promote the positive achievements made by motivated locals. The awards feature a range of categories including health, sports, arts and fashion, teaching, communituy service, the disability sector and indigenous achievement.

Doing something for the community, or even for yourself, a lot of times goes unrecognised. - Marilyn Roach, event manager.

“Doing something for the community, or even for yourself, a lot of times goes unrecognised and unacknowledged, and I think it often encourages a lot of other young people,” she said.

Nominations close on December 8, 2016. For more information or to nominate someone, or yourself, go to awardsaustralia.com
