And sometimes children deserve a pat on the back for doing something wonderful. The News’ Youth Awards are back for the second year running to celebrate the inspiring, heroic and courageous things our youngsters do. Whether it’s raising money for charity, excelling at school, helping a friend, or living life in the face of adversity, we want our community to come together to recognise the triumphs of our young people. All you have to do is nominate someone who you think deserves to get recognised and pick one or more of the 12 categories that best suit their achievement.
To nominate someone please download the entry form. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and request one or call Rosie Morgan on 02392 622202 to get one posted.
The awards will be taking place at the Kings Theatre, Southsea on Sunday 14th June 2015.
