What is the HappyWhenFit Health Ambassador Award?

The Happywhenfit Youth Health Ambassador Award recognises a young female and male aged between 12-18 years, who are demonstrating outstanding personal health commitment by combining a variety of fitness, nutrition and mental health promoting behaviours for a holistic picture of wellbeing. They are a positive role model to other young people, actively living, promoting and raising awareness around a healthy lifestyle. It is a young person committed to their own personal growth who demonstrates this by continually working towards goals that improve their health outcomes.


Young people aged 12-18 years can nominate themselves or be nominated by any member of the community. A male and female representative will be chosen, sharing in more than $1000 worth of locally-sponsored prizes.
The winners will be notified at the end of the judging period and invited to attend the award presentation ceremony, where they will be formally recognised.

Nomination dates for 2020 will be announced soon!
