Western Australian residents are encouraged to nominate an outstanding young person for the annual WA Youth Awards.
The awards, now in their 15thyear, were established in 1999 to recognise outstanding young Western Australians aged 12 to 25 years.
In 2013 the WA Youth Awards are proudly presented by the Department for Communities in partnership with the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia. The awards are supported by Lotterywest.
Entering a young person in the WA Youth Awards is a great way to showcase their strengths, abilities and achievements to the wider community and give them the recognition they truly deserve for their efforts.

· Minister for Youth’s Most Outstanding Youth Worker Award

· Motivate! Woodside Award
· Recreate! Cadets WA Award

· Educate! Edith Cowan University Award
· Participate! Commissioner for Children and Young People Award
Category winners will receive $2,000, and the WA Young Person of the Year will receive two return tickets to a European destination courtesy of the Department for Communities – Youth and Singapore Airlines.
Journalists and photographers will also be recognised for reporting on young people and youth issues through the 2013 Communicate!WA Youth Media Awards.
