Youth Fest 2022

We need your help to celebrate our local young people as part of Youth Fest 2022.

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:

  • A profile in The Maryborough District Advertiser
  • Promotion on Council and Central Goldfields Youth Social Media pages
  • Recognition at our Youth Fest event on Friday 28 October 2022 at the Station Domain, Maryborough from 4 to 6pm.
  • Certificate and gift bag

Nominations close Wednesday 26 October 2022.
