The 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards play an important role in encouraging and promoting the positive achievements of all young people throughout South Australia.

The Department of Human Services has begun the search for young individuals under 29, to be nominated and awarded in the Department of Human Services sponsored categories.

Aboriginal Achievement Award

The award recognises contributions to the Aboriginal and/or broader community, barriers overcome, leadership skills and cultural achievements. These passionate and dedicated young Aboriginal people make a real difference to our South Australian communities.

Nominations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people living with a disability and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are encouraged to help celebrate the full diversity of LGBTIQA+ communities.

Nominate a candidate
