Through our Young Achiever Scheme (YAS), we recognise and support young people (under 25) who display an outstanding commitment to and/or achievement in their chosen field.

There are six categories:

  • Arts, performance, music and dance;
  • Sport and recreation;
  • Community leadership;
  • Education and training;
  • Cultural; and
  • Agricultural, environmental and sustainability.
