OKR FM Young Presenters Quest

enadmin, 29th January 2013

The OKR FM Young Presenters Quest has been awarded Mitchell Shire Community Event of the Year for 2012 at the Shire's Australia Day Celebration held at Broadford.

Helping to manage events for young people, run by young people, the Young Presenters Quest has encouraged youth participation in the community radio sector and supported young people in planning, promoting, training and judging the presenters.

In the five years that the Quest has been running, over 80 young people aged 11-23 from all parts of the Shire have received training in community broadcasting and presented their own show. Many of these young presenters are still on air including the winner of the first Quest, Cameron Moir.

Each year, young people have taken over more and more of the running of the Quest and now they are involved in all the aspects of the event such as planning, promotion, training and judging. In recent years entrants in the Quest have participated in projects supported by the State and Federal Governments for organ donation, under age drinking, road safety and the Wingman campaign to help reduce alcohol related violence.
