Kristee Jolly is the 23-year-old executive support officer at the Shire of Toodyay and this year�s State winner of the Constable Care Child Safety Award.

The former Toodyay High School student set up a program to connect children and young people with sports, activities and recreation.

With an annual budget of only $2000, Ms Jolly worked with community and sports groups to provide two-hour sessions as part of the Toodyay Inclusion Holiday Program.

The program attracted more than 650 students, particularly those with disabilities and those at risk of problems.

Ms Jolly received her award at an event on Saturday.

�I feel it was an absolute privilege to be recognised with the award,� she said.
