Come on VVE! This is one of our own. Let’s push the votes over the top by joining together for this amazing cardinal! So impressed with this Young Citizen of the Year Finalist, Blake Sbrocco!
Leave things better than you find them. Blake was taught this early and strives to maintain this philosophy. In school, it has meant serving his class as their President since the 7th grade, organizing multiple events and representing both Westlake High School and Westridge Middle School in various capacities. In his community, this has meant volunteering over 300 hours through the Westlake chapter of Young Men’s Service League that he helped found...

One of our youngest donors, Ethan, was awarded Young Citizen of the Year this Australia Day for his fundraising efforts for RMHC North Australia.

Ethan continues to donate every year on his birthday and we are so proud of him - congratulations, Ethan! ❤️
Fantastic Yarra Ranges Council community awards event at Yarra Glen.

Happy Australia Day !! A day of recognition, history and remembrance for the past of this great country. I hope everybody has a great day and can manage to escape the heat.
I also had the honour of being a nominee for the young citizen of the year at Bingara today. Although not finally selected it is remarkable to know the impact my photography can have on other people and the wider community. With this knowledge i wish to continue to keep bringing this effect to others with my photography. I would like to thank anyone that nominated me and i would also like to thank all supporters.
Thank you !!

So tomorrow we will be having breakfast by the Leven River at the Australia Day Bbq because during the ceremony Esther will be receiving the Young Citizen of the Year Award from the Central Coast Council. I am so proud of our girl and her beautiful heart. For most of the year, every Tuesday morning she has been going to the connect cafe. A program set up for those suffering from dementia and their loved ones and carers.She has prepared and performed circus acts most weeks and spent so much time making special friendships with everyone she meets. They love her and she loves them. I love that she cares so much and she can tell you all their names. This girl is all heart and we are continually amazed and proud of how much she cares. So tomorrow we celebrate Esther and if you’re not doing anything feel free to join us.

~ Australia Day Awards now open ~ Do you know someone in our community who deserves recognition? Nominate today. Forms available online at the Council website 🇦🇺
Jamala Osman is possibly the most inspirational young lady I've met.
Growing up in a broken home in the midst of gang culture she could easily have resigned herself to a life of misery and failure.
Not a chance. She taught herself the skills needed to become the youngest bank manager in The City and now thrives helping others young Londoners find work that fulfils their purpose and destiny.
I met her recently when she spoke at TedX London and it was a no brainer to get her on the podcast.
Listen and be inspired by her story. 😀
Humble, mature beyond her years, and really very funny, Samantha was honoured at the 2018 Australia Day Celebrations where she was announced as the winner of Young Citizen of the Year Award. Dressed in her band uniform she stood up and proudly received the recognition she deserves.
Growing up in a family where active participation in the community is the norm, Samantha learned early that full participation (without seeking recognition) was the way to go. Despite this, Samantha has found herself honoured for her community work countless times.
In July 2015, two weeks after receiving her bronze medallion, Samantha was at the beach collecting sand samples for her year 10 Science project when she heard cries for help. There was no one else on the beach and, almost without thinking, she went into action and rescued a mother and her son. Not long afterward, the very grateful woman phoned Samantha’s mum, Sue, and told her what had happened. Needless to say, Sue was startled, proud and quick to leave the office to get to home to her daughter and hear the whole story.
Samantha’s dad passed away when she was very young. I think it is safe to say that he too would have been very proud of his youngest child – not because of her public accolades but because of her kind and giving nature. Samantha has embraced the Parkinsong Choir and coaches and referees in both hockey and basketball. She loves to travel, is actively involved in sport, music and loves just hanging out with friends.
Even before she has settled into her first year at university in Perth, Sam has found a way to connect and reach out to her new community by tutoring a student at a near-campus high school. This soon to be commerce student’s eyes sparkled with delight as she talked about driving up to meet him so that they could get to know each other and start working together as soon as school started.
