The Cowra Phoenix wishes to correct an er-ror in an article it published last week. The Cowra Youth Peace Award is an initiative of the Australian Chapter of the World Peace Bell Association to commemorate the International Day of Peace. It is not organised by the Cowra Youth Council as incorrectly stated. Cowra Council and the Rotary Club of Cowra are pleased to support the World Peace Bell Association in hosting the Award.

The Cowra Youth Council is very proud of its members, Stassi Austin and Destiny Pepper, on receiving nominations for the 2021 Cowra Youth Peace Award.
