What is Youth Week?
Youth week is an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and views, act on issues that affect their lives, and create and enjoy activities and events. Youth Week started as a NSW Government initiative and is now held in every state and territory across Australia.
To celebrate National Youth Week, we are hosting a design contest open to young carers who are between 12 and 24 years of age.
We are looking for a mascot or logo for your age group. This could be a drawing, a painting or something you design using a computer program.

2nd prize: $50 voucher of your choice.
3rd prize: 2 cinema tickets for a movie of your choice.

National Youth Hub
The National Youth Hub is operated by MND NSW with involvement from other MND state associations. It is a space for young carers to connect with other young people from across the country who are sharing similar experiences. A young carer is a person between 5 and 24 years of age and who is connected to a person who is living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND). This may be a friend or family member. The program can offer information, education, support and tools about MND. Information is tailored to two age groups, 5 -11 years of age and 12 – 24 years of age.
