DO you know someone under the age of 18 who has improved people’s lives in Bovey Tracey?
If so, you can ensure their achievements are recognised, as nominations are currently being accepted for the 2017 Bovey Tracey Young Citizens of the Year awards.
The awards acknowledge young people who have made an outstanding contribution to life for the benefit of others around them.
They can have done this individually or as part of a small group of young citizens who have overcome challenges in their own lives, or have been able to make a significant difference to others in their community.
Each nominee will be awarded a certificate recognising their achievements and they may also be nominated for the overall Young Citizen of the Year Award for 2017.
Town mayor Cllr Tony Allen said: ‘In previous years, these awards have been greatly valued by all those nominated, their families and friends, reflecting credit on the youngsters in our community. If you know of anyone who you feel would be a candidate for an award, please put their name forward.’
All nominees must be aged 18 years or under and live in Bovey Tracey or Heathfield. The closing date for nominations is February 28 and the judging panel will meet in March.
The awards will be presented at the annual town meeting at the Phoenix Hall in Bovey Tracey on March 29.
