Recognizing the Contributions Youth make to our Community

The Leadership in Action Group have established the Roxby Youth Awards to recognize the contributions youth make to our community by highlighting the not so visible achievements and accomplishments of our youth.

The Roxby Youth Awards are open for young people between the ages of 12 to 25 years of age and aim to recognise a diverse range of young people and their influence in the Roxby Downs community.  The awards aim to highlight varying skills and attributes across a range of fields and showcase significant accomplishments and contributions to our local community.
Through recognition of the accomplishments through these awards we hope to encourage even more participation from our youth within the community by creating a platform for our youth to be seen and heard.
