BELMONT’S very own super kids were celebrated in the spotlight thanks to a new award.

The inaugural Super Kid Awards recognises children aged 6-12 who have demonstrated inner superhero strengths and honours kids who’s superhero qualities have helped them to make a difference in their community.

Finalist in the Super Kid Doing Good category Toby King was recognised for his commitment to his local scouts group.

His mother Louise King said Toby played a great role in fundraising for the scouts’ trip to Sydney.

“Before they went a lot of fundraising had to be done and Toby was always willing to help out,” she said.

“He is respectful, polite and a positive role model for his peers.”

Along with Toby was Lily Goldsmith who was rewarded for her constant determination, enthusiasm and positivity in the face of adversity.

“Lily is the youngest of three children, she has grown up with two brothers who both have special needs but she is a fierce advocate for them,” Lily’s mother Candice Goldsmith said.

“She is a brilliant child and looks at the work in the most wonderful way, she’s my daily sunshine.”

Competition finalists from across Australia will be whittled down to two national winners after being chosen by an independent judging panel.

The winners will each be awarded $10,000 to support educational growth and development.
