Welcome to the 2021 City of Ballarat Youth Awards - Event Nominations.

Since 2005, the City of Ballarat Youth Awards have recognised the outstanding contributions that young people make in the Ballarat community. We wish to shine a light on the leadership, innovation, kindness, and exemplary commitment to community that young people demonstrate.

Ambassadors, Gorgi Coghlan, Tim Bone, Indya Hayes and Sam McColl are honoured to support this year's Youth Awards.

"There's never been a more important time to acknowledge and support our youth. I'm proud to help promote the City of Ballarat Youth Awards and share the passion, leadership and resilience in our youth community and how they continue to teach us about resilience and adaptiveness" - Gorgi Coghlan, Ambassador.

"I am really excited about being an ambassador for the City of Ballarat Youth Awards. As a past recipient I understand first-hand how important it is to recognise the amazing work that young people do in the Ballarat community" - Sam McColl, Ambassador.

This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Young People (aged 12 - 25) in the Ballarat community, and also recognise Adult Allies who empower our youth and create opportunities for them to thrive.
