Youngsters to be honoured with awards for hard work in Shildon
12:42pm Friday 18th October 2013 in News
NOMINATIONS are being sought for outstanding youngsters in Shildon who deserve an award for their efforts.
Shildon Children and Young People's Action Network (Scypan) is holding Shildon Young People’s Awards next month.
The trophies are presented to children who have gone the extra mile over the last year. This could mean they have looked after a seriously ill parent or they have done voluntary community work.
There are ten prizes including the Chloe Clarkson Special Achievement Award and the Young People’s Choice Award.
Derrick Robinson, chairman of Scypan, said: “There are a lot of good youngsters in Shildon who do not get the recognition they deserve.
“A lot of them care for the family or they do community work and they don’t get the recognition which they deserve.”
The winners will be presented with a trophy and a £10 voucher at the awards evening at Shildon Civic Hall on Wednesday, November 13.
Votes can be cast for youngsters who live in Shildon and who are aged between five and 18-years.
Details on the awards and nomination forms can be found via Tracey Bellas, at Shildon Town Council, on 01388-772563 or at shildonyouth.co.uk.
