THIS year in celebration of National Youth Week young people are invited to Race Through History by taking part in an ‘Amazing Race’ style adventure around the Kalamunda History Village.

Working in groups of three or four, teams will compete with questions and challenges related to Kalamunda’s local history to gain team points.

Teenagers will be rewarded with a free sausage sizzle, live music and activities at the end of the race while the points are added up.

The winners will take home vouchers for all members of the team and a trophy, with other prizes for best team costume and runners up.

Race Through History is on in National Youth Week on Sunday April 17, from 11am-1pm and open to all budding adventurers between the ages of 12-25. The week’s activities run from April 8-17.

Shire President Andrew Waddell said Race Through History was part of the National Youth Week celebrations encouraging young people to get inspired, get active and get involved in their local community.

“The aim of Youth Week is to provide young people with an opportunity to showcase their talents and celebrate being young and the Shire’s creative event invites all young people to register for the fun and festivities, whether as an individual or with a group of friends,” Cr Waddell said.

This National Youth Week event will be one for the history books so make sure you grab some friends and register as a group, or as an individual and we will find you a team for the Race Through History event.
