Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

4Uth Award

The Nottinghamshire Outstanding Achievement 4Uth Award is a Council initiative which is being supported by the Nottingham Post to celebrate the achievements of young people across the county. The awards seek to commend and recognise achievement in a number of areas including: 

  • Young people who have been involved in social or business enterprise 
  • Young people who have achieved in sport, culture or other areas 
  • Young carers 
  • Excellence in education and outstanding personal development 
  • Overcoming adversity, physical, emotional etc 
  • Young people involved in community projects and engagement. 

2013 4Uth winners

The 2013 4Uth county-wide winner is Sarah Miles from Ashfield.

Sarah cares for her mother and lost her dad two years ago to bone cancer in September 2011 after he spent three years battling the disease. Sarah cared for him throughout this period and has been her mum's carer since 2010. 

She wakes up every day at 6am to check how her mum is feeling and supports mum by dressing her and getting her food ready if she needs it that day.

Bassetlaw - Alex Jervis

Broxtowe - Emily Munton

"Emily is totally committed to promoting youth activities in her local area through fundraising and getting fully involved and she has become a vital member of her local youth organisation. She is held in high esteem by her peers and youth leaders and has helped fellow pupils by setting up a homework club to support them after school."
