YouthFest 2023

We need your help to celebrate our local young people for this year's YouthFest!

Do you know a young person aged 10 to 25 years of age who has made a positive contribution to our Central Goldfields community?

This could include helping out at weekend sport, achievements at school or work, volunteer contributions, or any other community contribution that would otherwise go unrecognised.

All nominees will be celebrated with:

  • Promotion on Council and Central Goldfields Youth Social Media pages
  • Recognition at our Youth Fest event on Friday 17 November 2023 at the Station Domain, Maryborough from 2.30 to 5.30pm.
  • Certificate and gift bag

Nominations close Sunday 12 November 2023 at 5pm.

The YouthFest event is supported by the Victorian Government.

  • Nominations are open to young people from 10 – 25 years
  • Young people must live, work or play in the Central Goldfields region. If the young person is from the immediate surrounding area – they are still eligible
  • You can nominate as many young people as you like
  • Young people will be featured in local media, so we will need to make sure they approve any images of themselves being used
  • All application must be received by 5pm, 12th November 2023

All nominees will be celebrated on Friday 17 November 2023.

Year 8 students from MEC and Highview will attend a ceremony from 11am to 1pm and general community nominees can attend from 2.30 to 5.30 pm on Friday 17 November 2023, at the Maryborough Station Domain.

Each nominee will receive a certificate and gift in recognition of their achievements.

Level Up Gaming and KiT Van will also be attending for young people to participate.
