Lancashire's Young Citizen of the Year Awards 2012
Nominations are being sought for a county-wide award that recognises the special achievements of young people.
The High Sheriff of Lancashire's Young Citizen of the Year Awards take place every year and involve the High Sheriff inviting applications to a competition to find a young person aged up to 21 who has helped either their local neighbourhood, an individual, family member or local organisation.
This year, High Sheriff Jeremy Gorick, wants to hear about all kinds of projects; projects that help make local communities safer and better places to live; those which help to regenerate deprived areas; or those which help people to build confidence and unlock their true potential.
All finalists will be invited to attend a presentation at Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters in Spring 2013 when the winner will receive £250 plus a special commissioned trophy and certificate from Lancashire's High Sheriff and Chief Constable. Two runners up will also receive £100 and a certificate.
A copy of the application form is available to download below or applications can be completed online.
The scheme is administered by the Lancashire Partnership Against Crime (LANPAC) on behalf of the High Sheriff and the closing date for nominations is the 31 January 2013. Approval of a parent or guardian is needed for the nomination, subsequent publicity and any future events involving the finalists.
