 Fraser Coast Youth Achievement Awards


The Maryborough Neighbourhood Centre will be hosting the 3rd Annual Fraser Coast Youth Achievement Awards on Friday, 25 November 2016. For 14 years, formerly known as the Maryborough Youth Achievement Awards, the centre has endeavoured to host this wonderful event with the objective of creating a positive perception of youth in Maryborough and its surrounding districts. In 2014, the very first Fraser Youth Achievement Award expanded to Hervey Bay and surrounds for the first time seeking to recognize young people within the Fraser Coast community who have set goals and achieved those self-defined goals through determination and will- power. We encourage our students at Xavier to consider nominating for these awards.


The Fraser Coast Youth Achievement Awards is a formal presentation evening and will feature honoured guests, speakers and performers displaying the talents of the young people from the Fraser Coast community. Tickets for the awards ceremony will be available for purchase at the Maryborough Neighbourhood Centre close to the date of the awards ceremony.

There will be a total of nine (9) awards to be presented, eight (8) Fraser Coast Youth Achievement Awards and one (1) Overall Young Achiever of the Year for Fraser Coast, each receiving a certificate, a trophy and a prize. The different categories are as follows:
