Search Is On For Nottinghamshire's Young Achievers
The search is on for the 2017 4Uth award winners which recognises the outstanding achievements of young people across Nottinghamshire.
The 7th annual Nottinghamshire County Council 4Uth Awards is looking for nominees who have excelled in a variety of areas including caring for others, sporting achievements, overcoming adversity or those who have made a vital contribution in their local community.
Last year more than 80 young people were recognised for their achievements with Cameron-Lei Ford from Calverton named the overall winner after he set up a gardening community social enterprise.
The County Council’s senior youth worker Pav Ayoub, who is co-ordinating this year’s event, said that Cameron was a worthy winner as he had shown tenacity and determination to turn his life around.
Pav added: “Cameron is an excellent role model for other young people as he has used his entrepreneurial skills to make life better for others in the Calverton community despite his own difficult issues.”
Young people can be nominated by individuals or organisations and nominations will close on June 16, 2017.
This year’s event will see seven district winners selected by a panel of judges which include head teachers, local community police officers, girl guide leaders and representatives from local churches.
The overall winner will be selected by a panel including the Leader of the County Council at an event at County Hall on 27 October.
