Federal MP for Bonner Ross Vasta is supporting young high achievers in his electorate by introducing the inaugural Bonner Bright Star award for the month of March.
Nominations are now open for the new award and will celebrate the accomplishments of youth in the Bonner electorate.
Mr Vasta said the award is open for all children of school age who are reaching outstanding results in sport, education, art or any other activity or commitment they are involved in.
“It’s a pleasure to be able to support the young people of our community. As a father of two I am always trying to encourage my boys to do and be the best they can, and as the Federal Member I want to be able to do the same for the kids of our community.
“While it may sound overdone children really are the future, and I am passionate about encouraging future generations to strive for greatness.”
Separate nominations will be taken each month and Member for Bonner Ross Vasta will announce the winner at the end of each month in a special ceremony congratulating the winner with a prize.
Nomination forms for the March Bonner Bright Star are now available online at www.rossvasta.com.au, all you have to do is describe in 100 words or less why your nominee deserves to be the Bonner Bright Star for this month.
