Youngsters who make a difference are sought
8:00am Wednesday 18th April 2012 in Ledbury
THE search is on to find West Mercia Police’s Young Good Citizen of the year.
Nominations have now opened for the award, which aims to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of young people in the community.
Nominees must be aged 18 or under and have demonstrated their commitment to helping others and making the difference in the community either individually or in a group activity.
Each nominee will be awarded a certificate recognising their achievements and they may also be nominated for the overall Young Good Citizen of the Year award.
There will be presented at force headquarters at Hindlip Hall in Worcester in October.
The Young Good Citizen Award Scheme is run by West Mercia Police in partnership with the High Sheriffs of Shropshire and Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
Chief Constable David Shaw said: “West Mercia Police is very proud and privileged to organise this event and bring together the very best of young people from across the force area.
“Young people make a significant contribution to our communities and these awards are a powerful reminder that our youngsters are an overwhelming force for good – contrary to the way in which they are often portrayed.
“The award is important as it highlights the exceptional achievements many young people make.”
So if you know someone who has raised a lot of money for charity, who puts others before themselves or has overcome challenges in their own lives while still making a difference to others, why not nominate them for this year's award?
