Awards

Welcome to Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest, and congratulations on being involved in the most exciting youth performing and visual arts experience in the state!

Everyone's a winner! But some also won a Health Award

Traditionally, YOH Fest entries compete in regional live heats held across WA, with finalists going forward to compete in the WA State Grand Finals for the ultimate crown of Act-Belong-Commit YOH Fest winners of their category.

In 2021, a winner & runner up will be awarded across all categories in both the live and online events for high schools. Primary schools participate as 'showcase' items with a selection of performances invited back to perform at the Grand Finals in October.

The Act-Belong-Commit Award will also be presented to entries with the strongest health message.

In 2020 however, due to the Corona Virus pandemic and with no live events, we moved to a Virtual platform - took away the competition element and only presented Act-Belong-Commit health awards to the entries with the strongest health message.

You can view the 2020 Act-Belong-Commit health award winners below.
