Scholarship Award Ceremony 2020 - POSTPONED

Western Chances places a high priority on the health and safety of our stakeholders.

In consultation with the Western Chances team, we have therefore made the sad but necessary decision to postpone the Western Chances Scholarship Award Ceremony scheduled to be held next Wednesday 18 March, 2020.
As you would expect in the current environment, and given the unpredictability of the COVID-19 situation, we need to help safeguard people’s health.

Thank you for your understanding. We hope to be able to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of our 2019 scholarship recipients and alumni later in the year.

About the Western Chances Scholarship Award Ceremony

The event will be attended by scholarship recipients, family members, nominators, school representatives, donors, supporters, Western Chances staff and Board members. The ceremony includes the presentation of certificates to new recipients, graduating alumni and the Helen Worladge Award for Outstanding Contribution to a committed and passionate scholarship nominator. It is a free event and we hope you can join us.
We are delighted to have the ceremony be opened by Terry Bracks AM and excited to welcome back Master of Ceremonies, scholarship recipient, James Holland. Western Chances recipients and alumni talents will be featured in an exhibition, a performance and a speech.
