Christine Cox Trailblazer Awards
Each year the Central Ranges LLEN Board recognises people (professionals or volunteers) who have demonstrated excellent leadership in achieving education, training and employment opportunities for local young people. Each recipient is awarded the Christine Cox Trailblazer Award, and receives $500 towards their strategic projects that support local young people. This year the award underwent a name change to be named after founding board member and staff member Christine Cox.
