Betty Makin Youth Awards

The annual Betty Makin Youth Awards celebrate the positive contributions of young people as well as the people who work with them in the City of Sydney local area.

2020 award nominations

Nominations are now closed for the 2020 Betty Makin Youth Awards. The awards presentation has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We'll update this page when the new date is confirmed.

Named after the late dedicated community leader and activist, Betty Makin, these awards recognise the importance of participation and service in Sydney’s local communities.

The awards encourage young people aged 12 to 24, and those who work with young people, to play an important role in building stronger and healthier communities.

In 2019 the awards included 4 categories for creativity, community mindedness, youth worker of the year and a group award for outstanding partnership.
