This award is funded by the CWA of WA State Projects Fund, and was established in order to publicly recognise and encourage younger volunteers. Branches are encouraged to identify and nominate exceptional young volunteers from their local community. Nominees do not have to be CWA members, and each entrant is assessed on their perceived value to their community. The winner is announced and presented with their Award at CWA State Conference each year.
This years winner was Lachlan Bormolini, pictured being presented with his award by WA State Governor Her Excellency the Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC – and back at Bedfordale Bushfire Brigade afterwards.
