Katherine’s Kate and Tick Everett were named Local Heroes of the Year at an awards ceremony in Canberra on Friday night, while Arnhem Land rapper Danzal Baker — known by his stage name Baker Boy — won Young Australian of the Year.
The Everetts were honoured for their tireless efforts to put an end to childhood bullying, following the tragic death of their 14-year-old daughter Dolly by suicide last January.
Young Australian of the Year Baker Boy may be a new talent to most Australians, but the 22-year-old is familiar to Territorians as a former member of high profile indigenous dance troupe Djuki Mala.
