Each year the Australia Day Awards, provide the opportunity to celebrate how fortunate we are to live in this nation, and particularly in the Cabonne Shire.
Cabonne Council annually selects a Youth Ambassador Of The Year from the Youth of the Month award winners. In 2024, Canowindra local, Lleyton Edenborough, was the honoured recipient of this Award at the Australia Day Award Ceremony.
Lleyton is 19 years old and works at Canowindra Tyre Service, completing Certificate 2 in Automotive Tyre Technology.
Lleyton is a competent, reliable, and hard-working young man, whose public relations and customer service skills are recognised through regular positive customer feedback to his employer.
He is a member of the Mount McDonald Rural Fire Service and volunteered with the local SES to assist with sandbagging during the recent flooding, evidence of his dedication to his community.
Lleyton demonstrates maturity in his personal and professional life through his dedication to his work and being a proactive member of his community.
When selecting the Youth Ambassador of the Year, Cabonne Council assess each applicants scholastic and sporting achievements, community involvement, leadership skills and abilities, along with the significance of their achievements in the broader community. Successful recipients display exceptional achievements which may inspire others and display a level of altruism.
The Youth Ambassador is recorded on an “honour board” displayed in the foyer of the Cabonne Council Chambers, and they are also invited to attend important events throughout the year.
Congratulations Lleyton on this prestigious award.
