The National Youth Awards are the national event of NYW.
The Awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of young people. The Awards are unique because the finalists and winners are selected by a panel of all young people. This unique Australian Government initiative is for those aged between 12-25 years old as of 16 April 2015. Individuals can be nominated for an Award or can apply for the Award themselves.
Also open for applications is the Youth in Media Award, which recognises a recent news story which has positively portrayed youth in the media.
