Nominations are now open for the Bishop Auckland Youth Awards 2019, which celebrate the town’s outstanding young people.
The Town Council wants to celebrate the extraordinary achievements and positive contributions of the town’s young people and the incredible journeys they have taken.
We are looking for local people and those who work with young people to submit suitable nominees before the closing date of Friday 22nd March 2019.
Examples of previous nominees include young people who:
- Care for friends or family members
- Have carried out an act of bravery
- Help in their local community
- Have overcome their own difficulties
- Live with an illness
- Achieve great things in sport, dance and drama or at school
We are also looking to celebrate the achievements of a Team of the Year
Do you know a group that is deserving of the ‘Team of the Year’ award and £500 to support their team’s future endeavours?
We’re not just looking for sporting success. A team can be a group of young people that have done something special in the past year. Last year’s winners were Cockton Hill Junior School Mini Police.
Information on the previous winners can be found on the Youth Awards page.
All nominees meeting the criteria will receive a certificate of achievement. The Mayor’s Medal will be awarded to a limited number of young people whose achievement have been special or outstanding. All nominees will be invited to a presentation evening to be held at Bishop Auckland Town Hall on Wednesday 1st May 2019.
