Kwinana Youth Advisory Council chair Stephanie Beaumont wins State award at the Next Gen Awards.

Kwinana Youth Advisory Council chair Stephanie Beaumont, winner of the Next Gen Young Leader of the Year Award.

The City of Kwinana congratulates Stephanie Beaumont who was recently awarded WA’s Young Leader of the Year at the Next Gen Awards held at Curtin University.

Miss Beaumont is also the chair of the Kwinana Youth Advisory Council (KYAC) which provides invaluable advice to Council, is involved in youth events such as the Halloween Chamber of Chills and facilitates youth-focused activities at local community events.

The recently graduated Year 12 student was head girl at Peter Carnley Anglican Community School, involved on the School Council and a peer support leader.

In addition to this, she also achieved her Silver Duke of Edinburgh this year and is an Anglicare ambassador.

“It was a huge honour to receive an award, I feel everyone who was a finalist was deserving,” Miss Beaumont said.

“There were so many inspiring finalists who do incredible work.

“Being able to talk with and meet so many young people was such an opportunity because Next Gen has kept us in contact with each other.

“There are also scholarships with mentoring opportunities linking us with industry specialists,” she said.

Mayor Peter Feasey said Kwinana was well-represented at the Next Gen Awards.

“In addition to Steph’s win, Belle Cardew, who is active in the community particularly in Wellard, was also a finalist for the same award, and Felix Abbott was named Young Innovator of the year,” Mayor Feasey said.

“Felix also received a LYRiK Scholarship from the City’s LYRiK youth development program earlier this year to support him in his education or employment goals and provide mentoring,” he said.
