LyriK receives a great deal of support, both financially and in kind from local businesses and industry. Without the ongoing encouragement, belief and contributions of these organisations, LyriK would not be able to continue supporting and addressing the needs of young people and the community.
Our Principal Sponsors:
Eclipse Resources is a founder member of the LyriK Youth Incentive Program and have been a strong advocate for “corporate Kwinana” investing in the community and its people. Without their ongoing extensive support and hard work the LyriK program would not have been as successful.
The Town of Kwinana is a founder member of the LyriK Youth Incentive Program and provides comprehensive support and management. This assistance offers governance whilst enabling the project to expand and develop into the success you see today.
Coogee Chemicals were impressed with the rapid progress the LyriK program was making and took up the opportunity to support and assist in the development of the program in 2009.
Alcoa became a supporter in 2009 following the initial success of the LyriK program.
BHP Billiton became a supporter in 2009 following the initial success of the LyriK program.
McCusker Charitable Foundation became a supporter in 2010 following the continued success of the LyriK program
Nominations Now Open!
Nominations are now open for Round 16 of the LyriK Awards! We have already recognised some pretty amazing young people in our community so far this year however, for this round we are set to recognise even more. LyriK has now increased the age for nominations to 18 years old which means that any young person between the ages of 10 and 18 years old can now be nominated for, and win, a LyriK Award!
Due to the age range changes, there have also been some changes to the way that you nominate a young person. We will now have two age groups for each category (10-14 year olds and 15-18 year olds) which will now mean that we have 2 winners for each award...effectively doubing the amount of young people that we can recognise for their positive contribution! New nomination forms have been designed and printed and will start showing up around the comunity soon, however we haven't had a chance to change the nominating process online as yet. So, if you are choosing to nominate online (either via the online form or the downladable word doc) please indicate the age of the young person in the additional comments section. This will be updated very soon, but we will appreciate your co-operation with this in the mean time.
Aside from that, the nomination process remains largely the same. So with nominations closing 2nd November 2012, what are you waiting for? Start nominating!
