The Permanent Way Institution (PWI) Young Achiever Award is for excellence and innovation which is granted to an eligible young rail specialist in the rail infrastructure industry (who is not necessarily an engineer) to recognise and encourage their contribution to their field, or generally in areas that are relevant to the objectives of the Permanent Way Institution.

The intention of the prize is to encourage the professional development of the recipient. The prize usually covers attendance at a major overseas rail industry event that is of relevance to both the PWI and the recipient such as a conference or exhibition, as approved by the PWI Management Committee.

The prize includes conference fees plus all reasonable costs for travel, accommodation and expenses totaling an amount up to $10,000.

This Award is open to individuals who are:

  • Current financial member of the PWI NSW at the time of entry, and
  • Are under the age of 35 as at 1 January 2020.

The judging panel will consist of five PWI members.

Nominations for the 2020 Award are now closed
