Young Citizen of the Year 2013
I really feel that this is a great scheme that recognises and celebrates young people’s achievements and acknowledges the contribution that they make to the communities.
There are lots of youngsters that must give this one a go and they have time to do it now!
Lancashire’s current High Sheriff Ann Dean wants to hear about all kinds of projects- from those that help make local communities safer and better places to live in, to those which help to regenerate deprived areas, or those which help people to build confidence and unlock their true potential.
Ann is looking for applications from young people ideally up to the age of 21. Youngsters that have been involved in helping the community, their neighbourhood, an individual member of the family, or helping in a local organisation.
BAE Systems are the sponsors and all finalists will be invited to attend a presentation at the Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters in March 2014 when the winner will receive £250 plus a specially commissioned trophy and certificate from the High Sheriff and Chief Constable Steve Finnigan.
Two runners up will also receive £100 and a certificate.
The closing date for nominations is January 31,2014.
Application forms can be obtained from the LANPAC(Lancashire Partnership Against Crime) office, on-line or they can be collected from local police stations.
Approval of a parent or guardian is needed for the nomination, subsequent publicity and any future events involving the finalists.
