The Northern Territory Young Achiever Awards were created in 1990, with the purpose of acknowledging, encouraging and most importantly promoting the positive achievements of young Territorians up to and including 29 years of age. The awards are an opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and showcase the recipients as role models within the community.
