What do award recipients receive?

All nominees will receive a certificate and select nominees will be recognised at a presentation ceremony in their state in Term 4 where a Junior Ambassador will also be announced.

Thanks to our corporate partner Specsavers, these state Junior Ambassadors will extend their humanity by allocating $5000 each to a Fred Hollows Foundation program of their choice to help us end avoidable blindness!
