MEET THE 2020 DIANA AWARD JUDGING PANEL_

Every year, we welcome 45 volunteer judges to assess nominations for the Diana Award. To keep the award fair and transparent, the external panel members are tasked with the tough decision to read, score and agree on who will receive a Diana Award.

5 June 2020

The judging panels are experts in their fields, comprised of a range of business and education professionals and young people, some of which are Diana Award recipients themselves. What they all have in common is their belief that young people deserve to be valued, celebrated and recognised for their outstanding contributions.

We want to say a huge thank you to all of our dedicated judges for your commitment and passion – we simply couldn’t do any of this without you.

‘Recognising young change makers can empower them, and those around them, to continue the good work – to let them know that the world has noticed and wants to say thank you. They may not be doing the task for recognition, but that certainly doesn’t mean that they don’t deserve it.’

“I think celebrating and recognising young people puts the often-invisible social change work on the spotlight and acts as a boost to young people that their work in communities’ matters.”
