A Launceston woman with a passion for giving back has been named Rotaractor of the Year at a national awards ceremony on the Gold Coast.
Holly Corbett took out the top gong at the Rotaract Australia Awards on Saturday and she wasn't the only winner from Tasmania.
The Rotaract Club of Tamar Valley was recognised for achieving the highest increase in membership of any club in Australia.

For its Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Christmas lunch, the Central Coast Rotaract Club received an award for best community engagement.
"I think there were about 10 awards and Tasmania won three of them so that's pretty exciting for Tassie," Mrs Corbett said.
"It's a bit of a shock, it's a bit mind-blowing but I'm absolutely stoked."
Mrs Corbett was recognised for her dedication to the cause and her work supporting Tasmania's four Rotaract Clubs as their district representative.
The groups consist of young adults aged about 18 to 35, who want to help better themselves and their local, national and international communities.
"I already get so much back from what I put in," she said.
"Rotary have supported me to do a lot of amazing things that grew me as a person and I just wanted to give back."

A passion to help people achieve and make a difference in their community motivated Mrs Corbett to become a Rotaractor, she said.
"My club, Tamar Valley, has actually partnered with a Rotary Club project in Bhutan which is supplying clean drinking water to school children.
"In June I've been asked to speak at the Rotary international conference in Hawaii and there are amazing international opportunities to link with clubs across the world and do shared service projects.
"The opportunities are endless."
