Zonta honours young women with big hearts

YOUNG women making their mark in the community through work or by volunteering can apply for a prestigious award to recognise their efforts.

Zonta is again offering its Young Women in Public Affairs Award, with criteria this year expanded to include all young women between 16 and 19 years old.

Warwick advocacy member Jenny Eldridge said a number of recipients of this award had gone on to great things.

"This is to encourage young women who are active in their communities to come forward and be recognised," Mrs Eldridge said.

"Each year we offer this award and it can lead right up to international level - it is quite prestigious.

"We are looking for someone who is also able to demonstrate an awareness of international issues and is aware of what Zonta does and its promotion of women's rights."

The goal of the Young Women in Public Affairs Award is to encourage more women to participate in public affairs.

The program recognises a commitment to the volunteer sector, evidence of volunteer leadership achievements and the advancement of the status of women.
