Aims & Eligibility:-

The Youth of the Year Program, run by the Lions Clubs of Australia, aims to encourage students aged 15-18 years old to take an active, constructive leadership role in their community. It seeks a high level of academic, leadership, sporting, public speaking and citizenship achievement, and to this end, winners are selected by judging panels from local club level through to national winners.
