Katy Gallagher has announced the happy recipients of some very small grants for worthy youth projects.
Each getting around $1,500 the winners are:
- Eden Daniels – Family Day
Aron Walsh – Stromlo High Café
Stephanie Levy – Save a Mate Chill Out Tent
Elena Sione – Samoa Youth Culture and Traditions Awareness
Melissa Aveyard – Young Stroke Survivors ACT
Michael Bailey – The Hunting Season Launch Week
Elysha McKay – Weston Creek Youth Festival
Katie Cox – The Breakout Book
Matthew Turnbull – Canberra Cup Water Polo Championships
Michael Galluzzo – National Youth Reconciliation Conference
Kacey Lam – Think Tank
Personally I’d be intrigued to know what the grant process cost compared to the disbursement of $16,200.
UPDATED: The ever charming Megan Purcell has been in touch to let us know that despite being initially left off the media release her application as President of the Tuggeranong Taipans Floorball club was successful.
As to the complexity of the grant process she had this to say:
- “On the topic of applications… To be honest I think it was probably more comprehensive than some others I have seen for amounts twenty times as much.”
RiotACT will, however, be following floorball and the Taipans as they progress.
