YouthRock has been a key focus event of Youth Week in NSW since 2000. YouthRock has evolved from a local band competition run by Belmore Boys High School, to a state-wide talent search with winners including Silverchair, Alex Lloyd and 2009 Australian Idol runner up Hayley Warner.
YouthRock provides an opportunity for high school students to create and enjoy entertainment and to acknowledge and celebrate the positive contributions made by their efforts and achievements, one of the key objectives of Youth Week. It also showcases student bands to the music industry.
The competition is judged by music and recording industry representatives. The music and recording industry provides more than $10,000 worth of prizes to the finalists.
