ROTARY CLUB OF WOLLONDILLY NORTH REWARD YOUNG COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS as seen in Macarthur Chronicle (2nd December 2011)
YOUNG people who are active in the Wollondilly shire community are encouraged to apply for The Rotary Club of Wollondilly North’s Youth Recognition Awards.
Now in its second year, the awards honour the skills, abilities and achievements of the region’s young people. Youth Recognition Awards Committee chairman Kevin Smith said last year’s winners included Todd and Tamara Biffin, with awards in the workplace excellence and special achievement categories.
“Applications for our inaugural awards were quite diverse,” he said. “We hope to extend our reach to many more achievers this year.”
Anyone between 16 and 25 who lives, works or studies in the shire can apply.
Awards are given to those who have excelled or shown innovation in their field or have been recognised by the community. Those with the potential to excel in their field, or who have overcome or are experiencing hardship, are also recognised.
