Live Online Broadcast

The 2020 Warrnambool and Moyne Youth Awards will be broadcast live in a special online event on May 8 at 7pm.

The awards, normally a packed affair at the Lighthouse Theatre, were postponed due to COVID-19. 

Despite this the Warrnambool and Moyne Youth Councils were still eager to recognise the achievements of the region’s young people.

The youth councils have adopted an online format, with the potential for people to tune in from anywhere.

The ceremony will be hosted by radio presenter, author and former Warrnambool resident Alex Dyson.

List yourself as “going” to the Warrnambool and Moyne Youth Awards Facebook event and you’ll see all of the content in the lead up to the big night, as well as the awards themselves presented by Alex Dyson.

If you don't have a Facbook profile, you can visit either the Warrnambool City Council or Moyne Shire Council Facebook pages and watch the event there. You won't need to sign in to watch the awards.
