NASCA is once again hosting our very own NAIDOC Youth Awards in 2020, however a little different this year due to COVID-19, we’ve decided to make July a month long celebration to celebrate NAIDOC week! Modelled on NASCA’s Values we will recognise student achievement and excellence in five categories;

  • Excellence – Being the best you can be
  • Integrity – Doing the right thing
  • Trust – Believing in yourself and others
  • Collaboration – Being an active member of the NASCA community
  • Cultural Pride and Inclusion – Always was, always will be, and I am always proud
  • Youth of the Year Award

The NASCA NAIDOC Youth Awards recognises the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in their local community acknowledging their outstanding achievements.
