For many, the Award acts as a stepping stone for Participants to go on to achieve amazing things.
Billy Blackett received his Gold Award in November last year, and he has since received a nomination for the 2022 Young Achiever Awards in the Qoin Small Business Achiever category, in recognition of founding and managing his own tutoring business, Affordable Tutoring Tasmania.
The successful business is youth-led and locally owned, providing students from Kinder to Year 12 with academic support. The winner is due to be announced in June, we wish Billy the best of luck!
You can see the announcement of Billy’s Award in the local tassie newspaper, the Kingborough Chronicle, here.
