Community Education Student of the Year 2020 Awards Announced

Community Colleges Australia (CCA) has announced the opening of nominations for the 2020 Community Education Student of the Year Awards.

Students eligible for the 2020 Awards are those who have undertaken formal study with an Australian not-for-profit community education organisation during the period 1 September 2019 through 31 August 2020, with nominations submitted through their community education provider.

“This is the third year in a row that CCA has run these awards, which are one of the highlights of the annual community education calendar,” said Dr Don Perlgut, CEO of Community Colleges Australia.

“All of our past winners and shortlisted students have achieved extraordinary results, and reflect the diversity of our sector, the strengths of our members and the importance of the personalised attention that not-for-profit community providers can give to their students,” said Dr Perlgut.
