Anti-Poverty Awards for Young Victorians
9 August 2005 at 1:08 pm

After a successful inaugural year in 2004, applications for the Anti-Poverty Award for Young Victorians are again being received in 2005.

The awards are a joint initiative of St David’s Uniting Church in Canterbury and Connections Child, Youth and Family Services and are supported both financially and with staff involvement by the ANZ Bank.

Victorians between the ages of seventeen and thirty-two who have been making a contribution to the eradication of poverty are invited to apply for the awards. A panel of people with government, community and business backgrounds review the applications with the recipients being announced in Anti-Poverty Week, October 16 to 22, 2005.

Awards include the overall award, a $3500 personal development experience for one of the applicants. Up to five applicants will also receive encouragement awards of up to $500.

The 2004 overall award recipient, Sophie Kovic used her award to further her understanding of refugee advocacy and human rights issues in Azerbaijan. The experience led Kovic to resign as a solicitor with a major law firm and travel to France where she has just been accepted for a postgraduate course in international law.

Information about the awards and application forms are available from the Anti-Poverty Awards website http://www.antipoverty.unitingchurch.org.au or by contacting the awards office at 03 9539 2312 or at info@antipoverty.unitingchurch.org.au .
