The City of Ballarat Youth Awards recognise the outstanding contributions that young people (aged 12 – 25) make in the Ballarat community. They wish to shine a light on the leadership, innovation, kindness, and exemplary commitment to community that young people demonstrate.

This year, the City of Ballarat Youth Awards include the Leadership in Sport Award. 

This Award recognises a young person (as an individual or as part of a team) who has made a difference in their club, team, organisation or community. They have demonstrated values such as commitment, fairness, teamwork, cooperation and leadership in sport. This may include club volunteers, coaches, umpires, team members and players who go above and beyond.
