Nominations for the Children's Environment and Health Local Government Report Card Awards opened today, and the Commissioner said he is hoping to have many excellent nominations for the Children's Consultation category.
“We have continued our support of the Awards’ Children’s Consultation category to recognise the important work of local governments to give children and young people a voice on a broad range of matters affecting their community,” Commissioner Colin Pettit said.
“Last year’s Children’s Consultation category winner, the City of Melville, held regular community workshops and school holiday activities where children’s views were actively encouraged and listened to.”
“This year I’m looking forward to seeing more innovative approaches that reach out to a range of children and young people and result in real, practical responses.”
The awards are coordinated by the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA, and the Commissioner will present the category winner at a ceremony to be held in December 2016.
