State Member for Cessnock, Clayton Barr MP, congratulates Charlotte Childs on her nomination as a finalist in the 2021 ‘The One To Watch Awards’ at the NSW Women of the Year Awards.

Charlotte Childs of Heddon Greta has been nominated for ‘The One To Watch award’ for her commitment and dedication to wellbeing and fundraising projects for her school and community. Charlotte is President of Kurri Kurri High School’s Interact Club, a youth section of Rotary.

‘The One To Watch’ is a new category that has been added to the 2021 NSW Women of the Year Awards. The category recognises girls and young women aged 7 to 17 who demonstrate courage, strength, determination and/or kindness to help and support those around them.

“It is great to see Charlotte’s nomination in this category. It is vital that we have young people committed to making a difference in our community, and it’s fantastic to see Charlotte recognised for her hard work and dedication” said Mr Barr.

Winners will be announced at the 2021 NSW Women of the Year Awards being held Sydney’s International Convention Centre on Wednesday 10 March.
