Youth awards search for inspirational youngsters

Aspirational: Young people making a difference in local communities could be nominated for a new youth award.

Off The Bench Lincolnshire will be holding its first youth award event next year, and is looking for people to nominate exceptional youngsters.

The Lincolnshire Youth Awards 2012 aims to celebrate young people who have made a difference to Lincolnshire and its communities.

There are 12 different Lincolnshire Youth Awards up for grabs in four different categories, varying from sport awards to personal achievement awards.

Anyone living in Lincolnshire and between 14 and 25 can be nominated for the awards (if the nominee is under 16, parental permission is required).

Chief Executive Pete Genders said: “We are so pleased to be hosting the 1st Annual Lincolnshire Youth Awards, we have some absolutely outstanding young people in Lincolnshire doing some spectacular things and it’s time they were recognised for all their hard work.

“These awards will give them the recognition they deserve.

“I can’t wait to start reading through the nominations, the hunt is now on for the pride of Lincolnshire’s youth”

The deadline for nominations is January 13, and the event will be held at The Showroom on March 16.
