Good Guys labels Ballina boy Braydan a Super Kid

BALLINA’S Braydan Webb is a national finalist in the inaugural Super Kid Awards, winning a Samsung tablet and the unique opportunity to potentially take out the coveted major prize.

The awards program, created and run by The Good Guys, recognises children aged six to 12 who have demonstrated their inner “superhero” strengths and capabilities, and honours children whose superhero qualities have helped them to make a difference in their community by doing good.

Braydan, in Year 5 at Summerland Christian College, was nominated for his empathetic nature.

Braydan works hard during extra support lessons at school to overcome his speech and language difficulties.

Despite facing such challenges, Braydan remains a role model to other children by demonstrating honesty and compassion.

The Good Guys Ballina store general manager Dax Cowan said he was proud to recognise Super Kids within his community.

“The Super Kid Awards program honours children who show superhero qualities in their daily lives, making them a role model for their friends, family and local communities,” said Dax.

“I’ve truly been inspired by Braydan and my team and I all have our fingers crossed that they take out the national Super Kid Award title.”

From the finalists across Australia, two national winners will be chosen by an independent judging panel.

The winners will each receive $10,000 from The Good Guys to support their educational growth.

A Super School Award will also be granted, providing $10,000 to one Australian primary school to develop a specialist program focusing on education and well-being.

“We are committed to continuing our support of children now and into the future,” said Dax.
