The National Youth Award Finalists are... - Interns Australia

After many hours of excited discussion and deliberation, our 2015 National Youth Awards (NYA) finalists have been selected. This year’s NYA entries were absolutely superb, and shortlisting four exceptional young people for each of the diverse range of categories was incredibly tough.

The winners will be officially crowned at the NYA Awards Presentation Dinner on 16 April and announced on this website shortly afterwards.

Now, without further ado—this year’s finalists!
