Young Achievers Award (YAA)


Driven and talented young people are the key to the future of the defence industry. In order to recognise individuals who may be future industry leaders, AIDN has created the AIDN Young Achiever Award

Nominations for the 2020 AIDN YAA will open later in the year.

The AIDN Young Achiever Award (YAA) was created to recognise the important contribution made by young people in Australia's defence industry. The award is held at the AIDN QLD level and the winner will compete for the national award.

AIDN invites you to demonstrate your achievements as a young professional by entering these awards in 2020.


The Award is open to all members of Defence Industry aged 30 years and under (entrants must be under 30 years of age on 1 January 2020). You do not have to be a member of AIDN to enter but you must be nominated by a member of AIDN.


Winning the AIDN Young Achiever Award recognises your efforts, and demonstrates your achievements and your potential to your colleagues, clients and future employers.
