Do you know a kid in the Tweed who has made an outstanding contribution to community life? If so, you should consider nominating them for a Kids in Community award.

Modelled on its northern rivers counterpart, the Tweed Kids in Community group recognises young people who are doing great things in the shire that deserve recognition.

There are nine categories and two age divisions (13–18 years and 19–25 years).

To nominate a young person who you believe does wonderful things for our community and who needs to be applauded, download a nomination form at www.kic.com.au.

Whether you’re a parent, friend, teacher or just an anonymous bystander, it costs nothing to nominate and the recognition is inspirational for the young person nominated, as well as other young people in our community.

Nominations have now been extended until 24 July, so get your nomination in soon! The Kids in Community awards night will be held at Twin Towns on 8 September. For more information visit www.kic.com.au.
