Mr Wyatt today announced that applications for the Hasluck Creative Young Stars program are now open. The Hasluck Creative Young Stars program will invest $23,500 in the Hasluck electorate this year, with grants of $500 for individuals and $3000 for groups of six or more.

‘Our community is full of talented young people. But all too often, families find it difficult to meet the cost of lessons, competition and events associated with creative activities,’ said Mr Wyatt.

‘I want to make sure that our young people have the best possible chance at success, and the Hasluck Creative Young Stars Program is one way to give our young people a head start.

‘The Hasluck Creative Young Star grants will help young people further develop their creative talents by helping them take part in competitions, eisteddfods, public speaking tournaments and other cultural, artistic or academic events.

‘I strongly encourage young people 25 years and under to apply for a Creative Young Stars grant to help them chase their dreams,’ Mr Wyatt said.
