Nominations will be received in two categories- the Youth Leadership Award for leaders aged between 14 and 18, with $5,000 prize money, and the Community Leadership Award for leaders aged 18+, with $10,000 prize money.
The prize money will enable the winner to undertake professional development such as further learning, travel, research, or project development.
Nominations will be reviewed by a judging panel and chaired by Commissioner for Children and Young People, Bernie Geary OAM.
