Council celebrates Young Legends through inaugural awards

Redland City Council has launched the Redlands Coast Young Legends Awards to celebrate the outstanding contributions of young people in the community.

Mayor Karen Williams said the inaugural awards would recognise the achievements of Redland City residents aged 13 to 25.

“There are a lot of young people in our community who are doing amazing things but they are often overlooked,” she said.

“I know our youth will be our future leaders and it’s more important than ever for us to recognize the great contributions young people make in our community.

“When we were in the middle of the pandemic last year we noticed young people were helping others and volunteering with organisations within Redland City.

“Now we’re calling on people to nominate the Young Legends they know in our community so we can formally acknowledge their contributions.”

Online nominations are now open in four award categories:

  • Young Legend of the Year
  • Community Commitment
  • Environment and Sustainability
  • Sports Leadership and Achievement

Nominations close at 4pm on 12 March 2021 and all finalists will be invited to an awards night on 15 April 2021, during National Youth Week.
