Liam Elected Regional Ambassador

Margaret River resident Liam Moore has been elected as one of the 15 outstanding youngsters to be WA’s regional ambassadors for the Positive Image Awards this year.

The news article ”Liam a regional ambassador” has full details on this story. It says: ”A year 12 student at Margaret River Senior High School, Liam is a committed student council member and has been an active community volunteer for the past five years. He is about to complete his Certificate 2 in Land and Conservation Management and is leading fundraising activities for the International Anti-Poaching Foundation, inspiring other students to share his interest and passion.” http://www.margaretrivermail.com.au/story/1167414/liam-a-regional-ambassador/?cs=1429

Liam volunteers at the Margaret River Lions Club over weekends and received the Year 11 Citizenship Award last year. He is also a leading member of the School Conflict & Mediation group, actively working with students to help resolve conflict and disputes.

Liam is presently in East Timor to take part in a voluntary project during Leavers Week. His mother said that he was absolutely stoked after receiving the honour.

”We’re so proud of him, he’s quite humble about it,” she said.

Minister for Youth Robyn McSweeney said that the Positive Image Awards recognises and appreciates the achievements and hard work of WA’s youngsters, who make an extra effort to support their fellow students, the wider community as well as people overseas.

”These ambassadors are young leaders who promote positive change among their peers and help the disadvantaged at home and abroad,” said Mrs McSweeney, before adding, ”This year’s winners are outstanding role models who show dedication and passion for what they do – they are truly an inspiration.”

Earlier this year, high schools were asked to nominate one of their students to participate in the race to become the Positive Image Region Ambassador for their local education district.

The winners of the Positive Image Awards include one student from each regional education district – Kimberley, Pilbara, Mid West, Goldfields and Wheatbelt, two ambassadors from the south west in addition to eight students from two metropolitan districts.

School Ambassador nominations should demonstrate how the student is an excellent role model by initiating or taking part in youth activities and projects at school or in the community, and by inspiring fellow students through their actions at school or in the community.
