Warrnambool and Moyne Youth Awards is an annual event coordinated by the Warrnambool Youth Council and the Moyne Youth Awards Project Working Group.

The Youth Awards provides the community with an opportunity to recognise and celebrate our young people’s diverse talents, achievements and contribution to their communities.
