September slated for young achiever awards

An awards night in Melbourne recognising young achievers across Victoria has been postponed in light of the current COVID-19 situation.

Ararat College school captain and student journalist Jack Ward was one of four finalists in an online category planning to attend a 7News Young Achiever Awards presentation dinner.

The event has changed from June 12 to Friday, September 18.   

Staff at Central Grampians LLEN, who have worked closely with Jack on projects including Resilient Ararat, nominated him for the award.

The awards acknowledge, encourage and promote the positive achievements of all young people aged under 30 in Victoria. 

Finalists will be recognised in 10 categories, with each category winner announced on the night, followed by the announcement of the 2020 Victorian Young Achiever of the Year.

Organisers of the event expected 600 guests including federal, state and local government members, businesses, community leaders and media to attend.
