The LyriK educational scholarship award ceremony was held on Friday 7 December at the Zone Youth Space, where sixteen local youths were awarded scholarships for 2019. ​

The LyriK Educational Scholarship program received 60 nominations this year and the assessment panel had the difficult task of narrowing down the candidates to just 16.

For over a decade through the LyriK Scholarship program, the City and its program sponsors have offered scholarships to assist with financial support as Kwinana’s young people transition through their schooling.

Mayor Carol Adams said, “At the City of Kwinana we value the importance of education, and we continue to provide the youth of Kwinana with the best opportunities possible.”

“The LyriK Educational Scholarship program is a fantastic initiative that not only highlights the exceptional youth in Kwinana but fosters their development to go on and achieve greater success.”

Each year the LyriK Educational Scholarship program gains fantastic support from parents, teachers, community members and most importantly, from the youth of Kwinana.

The LyriK program is a City of Kwinana program, sponsored by Alcoa and Coogee Chemicals.​
