2019 is the ninth year of the annual 4Uth Awards, a celebration of excellence and achievement among young people in Nottinghamshire. Organised by Nottinghamshire County Council, the awards showcase the very best of how young people triumph over adversity, care for people around them, their work on community projects and their volunteering efforts.
Nominees are identified by peers, youth leaders, teachers and family members as a special source of inspiration.
Councillor Philip Owen, the county council’s chairman of the Children and Young People’s committee, said: “The 4Uth awards are a marvellous celebration of young people and how they can make a real difference.
“Over the coming weeks we will receive nominations that are truly inspirational and reflect the community spirit and selfless efforts of so many young people from every part of the county. I would urge anyone who has come across a young person who has gone above and beyond to get their nomination in.”
Nomination forms are available at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/4uth.
The closing date for nominations is Friday 21st June with district winners announced in early September.
A judging panel made up of the Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, the chairman of the Young People’s Board and other senior county council officers will select an overall winner to be unveiled at an Awards evening in the Assembly Rooms at County Hall on Friday 22nd November.
