Spalding teen a finalist in WA Youth Awards
A 17-year-old youth consultant from Spalding is among 24 young Western Australians named as finalists in the 2017 WA Youth Awards.
Allee Edith Bartlett is a consultant for Geraldton Sporting Aboriginal Corporation’s youth programs.
Her nomination describes her as active in recruiting for the programs, particularly young Aboriginal girls.
“Allee’s maturity and strength of character has been tested over the past couple of years, however she has been a constant source of support and kept going with her school, sport and community work despite the grief surrounding her,” it reads.
Midwest Charity Begins At Home (Youth), which raises funds for local families in need, is one of eight organisations which are finalists in the awards.
The WA Youth Awards are open to Western Australians aged 12 to 25, as well as organisations that work with and support WA youth.
One individual category winner will be named WA’s Young Person of the Year at the State Theatre Centre on October 12, 2017.
