Saddle Hill high achievers sought

Scott Weatherall.

The Saddle Hill Community Board is calling for high achieving young people to apply for its Youth Ambassador Award.

The award, which comes with a $1000 grant, is designed to support a young person in their endeavours or cultural areas.

Saddle Hill Community Board chairman Scott Weatherall said this would be the sixth year the board had offered the award, and that it was “keen to give the money away”.

“In past years, we have been able to support some very impressive young people in our community on to the Olympics, and international science and music festivals,” he said.

The Youth Ambassador Award is open to young people aged 13 to 25 years, who live in the Saddle Hill Community Board area of Waldronville, Westwood, Ocean View, Brighton, and Fairfield.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday, April 12.
