RYSA Awards Evening
The Regional Youth Services Awards (RYSA’s) are an opportunity for the Hunter Region Youth Sector to come together and celebrate the successes of the year and show our appreciation for the hard work and dedication of all of those who contribute to the positive wellbeing of young people. Awards are provided in the categories of Youth Event of the Year (Hunter wide), Youth Friendly Business of the Year (Hunter Wide), Youth Sector Worker of the Year (LGA specific) and Young Person of the Year (LGA specific).
The 2017 Awards will be held at East’s Leisure and Golf Club in Tenambit and ticket price includes a selection of finger food dinner and live entertainment. (Drinks are available for purchase at the bar.) The evening will also see the auction of artwork created from the grant proceeds of the RYDON Aboriginal Arts Grant. This year we have created an environment where people can mingle and catch up.
