West Australian Youth Awards 2010 winners video and reaction to a protest by a finalist against mining companies

It’s my 10th year as a Judge in the Media and Charmaine Dragun Memorial Commendation categories – what a great night it was for these amazing young west aussies.

The future’s in good hands 🙂

Young Person of the Year Announcement and acceptance by Jeremiah Wordsworth.

Australian of the Year Professor Patrick McGorry speaks to Youth Minister Donna Farragher, clearly chuffed at the protest during the environment category.

Winner of the Charmaine Dragun Memorial media prize is Nicholas Sas – Albany Advertiser
