This aims to recognise and encourage young people in local community for their effort and involvement in areas beyond normal school and family life. The young people nominated are the community leaders of tomorrow. It is hoped that the recognition they receive will encourage them and others to continue to serve their community knowing that they are appreciated.
The winner will not necessarily be the cleverest, the fastest or the most proficient in each or all of the award categories. They will be a person who is involved, concerned and aware of their responsibilities and opportunities. The personal qualities of the winner will show that they are prepared to work and support these social ideals, which are in the best interests of our local community.
Rotary is involved and sponsors some great YOUTH SERVICE PROGRAMS throughout the year. Our objective within Youth Service is to prepare our youth - all young people up to the age of 30 - for a world of challenges and opportunities. By improving their life skills, we hope to help them achieve a better future, while recognising the diversity of their individual needs. Here is just a brief view of some of the wonderful services Rotary can provide.
ROTARY YOUTH SERVICE PROJECTS take many forms around the world. Rotarians sponsor athletic teams, centres for disabled children, school safety patrols, summer camps, orphanages, recreation areas, safe driving clinics, county fairs, child-care centres, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops and children's hospitals. Many clubs provide vocational counselling, establish youth employment programs
