NSW/ACT Young Achiever Awards

Patron’s Message

It is often stated that our youth are our future and in NSW and the ACT I know this to be true but as the immensely proud patron of the NSW/ACT Young Achiever Awards, our youth are just as important to our present.

In NSW the Liberals & Nationals Government is making major decisions that will benefit future generations through policy and social changes.
The contribution young people make to our community cannot be underestimated and this is a wonderful way to recognise their achievements.

I am fortunate to meet many young people from across NSW in my role as Deputy Premier and I have witnessed first-hand the skills, leadership, ideas and passion our youth bring to this great state.

My conversations with them are thought-provoking, provide new and fresh perspective and show our youth are serious about the issues that affect the world they live in.
I am inspired by the talented individuals who are dedicated to the pursuit of excellence for themselves and future generations through connection to their communities and peers.

Everyone deserves the opportunity be recognised for their achievements and the NSW/ACT Young Achiever Awards is a great way to identify our future leaders. I congratulate everyone involved in these awards.
