Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards

Premier's Message

Hon Jay Weatherill MP

The young people of South Australia are our future and our greatest asset.

So I want them to live in a State where their energies, talents and creativity are encouraged, and they are inspired to take on the world.

The Channel 9 Young Achiever Awards help foster exactly this environment, and I am very pleased to be Patron of the program.

If you know of someone, aged between 14 and 29, who is excelling in their chosen field of endeavour, setting a positive example to others and contributing to the common good, I urge you to nominate that person in one of the 11 Award categories.

Recognition and reward is a powerful motivator, and winning a Young Achiever Award provides the kind of affirmation that can inspire our young people to be leaders and, so, make our State a place where we can all thrive.

I commend the organisers and sponsors of the Awards, and I look forward to the announcement of the winners in March 2016.

Hon Jay Weatherill MP
Premier of South Australia
