The title of Young Citizen of the Year went to Emma Browning, a former head prefect at New Norfolk High School who will start Year 11 at Claremont College next month. In 2016 Emma led
the NNHS prefects and student leadership group in many charity events, including the "Light the Night" Leukaemia Foundation fundraiser.

"Recently, Emma was awarded the New Norfolk High School medal as recognition of her service to the school and the community across all areas including academic, sporting and community service," Cr Evans said.

The Magra Fire Brigade quiz night was named the Community Event of the Year.

Congratulations Lexia, Emma and the Magra Fire Brigade.
