A group of local young people are holding a creative photographic exhibition called Youth in the Spotlight to showcase amazing young people who contribute to the Greater Bendigo community to celebrate Victorian Youth Week from April 5 to 14, 2019.

The Youth in the Spotlight exhibition will be launched at the Rock & Amp; Raw FReeZA event from 3pm to 7pm on Saturday April 6, in the car park between Headspace and Jools for Jim at 78 Pall Mall. Exhibition entries will then go on display at the Bendigo Library and Hargreaves Street Mall (former Diva shop window) for the duration of Victorian Youth Week.

Greater Bendigo Youth Council member Billie Taylor (former BSSC student) said Yo Bendigo is calling for people aged 12-24 to nominate themselves or a friend to be recognized for why they are so amazing. “It can be something as small as helping a neighbour, volunteering or simply being a caring and compassionate person,” Billie said.

“If you or someone you know contributes to and does amazing things for our community please share yours or their photo and story with us so it can be put in the spotlight.”
