Nominations into the Department’s 2020 Achiever Awards have been extended.

The Achiever Awards are unique to Western Australia and provide financial assistance to young people aged between 15 and 25 years who are entering their first year of a course at an approved educational or training institution or commencing an apprenticeship or traineeship.

Nominations can be made by a parent, relative, foster carer, teacher, case manager, education officer or non-government representative.

The importance of acknowledging and rewarding the achievements of young people who have endured adversity cannot be underestimated.

The final date for nominations is Monday, 10 February 2020.
