On Wednesday the 6th of October, YFCC was proud to host our Inspiring Youth Awards for 2021. For the second year in a row, the Inspiring Youth Awards once again highlighted the many and ongoing contributions that young people make to the North-West Tasmanian Community and provided an opportunity for recognition and reward. We had many young people nominated across the five different categories, with over 95 community members attending the presentation ceremony at Burnie Arts & Function Centre. Giovanna Simpson, Deputy Mayor of Burnie City Council was the guest speaker and spoke to her experience of the amazing impact that comes from supporting and recognising youth and their contributions within the community.

The Winners of each category for 2021 were:

Yes I Can – Taso Bookarof

The Great Mate – Kinae Edwards

They Did What? – Tamara Johnson

Quiet Achiever – Emma Johnston

Kindness Counts – Xavier Kirkland

Thanks to everyone who nominated, attended our awards gala and especially those who were nominated or won their category! We look forward to building on this event in 2022.
