2017 NATIONAL THEME – ‘EDUCATION HAS THE POWER TO TRANSFORM CHILDREN'S LIVES’
ARTICLE 29 - UN RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
The purpose of Children’s Week, held nationally, is to raise awareness of the needs, interests, rights and achievements of children and young people and to assist them to realise their individual potential. The presentation of Awards allows ACT Children’s Week to give public recognition to individuals or groups for outstanding contributions to the welfare and interests of children and young people, either in a voluntary or paid capacity.
We are looking for people in the community who ‘make a difference’, not forgetting the ‘quiet achievers’. We also seek nominations for young people who make a difference and are role models for others.
Selected Award recipients will be presented with Awards at the 2017 ACT Children’s Week Launch Ceremony to be held at the National Museum of Australia on Wednesday 25 October – Universal Children’s Day in Australia.
All other Award nominees receive an Award Certificate and congratulatory letter during Children’s Week.
