Each year, the Foundation for Young Australians hosts the Unleashed Awards to celebrate incredible initiatives, led by young people, addressing issues big and small, whether it’s in the local community or broader society.
FYA’s Unleashed Awards are a unique opportunity to back, connect, and celebrate young people who are contributing to and leading change.
In 2019 there are six categories open for nominations for young people aged 12-29. Finalists from across the country will be flown to the ceremony where award winners will be announced at Melbourne Town Hall on the night of Thursday 14 November, 2019.
Each category has a prize of $1000. The categories for this year are:
- Jumpstart Award (ages 12-17)
- Local Legend Award (ages 12-25)
- Too Deadly Award (Indigenous youth ages 15-29)
- Gamechanger Award (ages 18-29)
- Storyteller Award (ages 15-29)
- Spotlight Award (ages 12-29)
For finalists not based in Victoria, FYA will cover the flights and accommodation for one representative from each shortlisted entry plus a chaperone if they are under 18, or a friend if they are over 18.
