Celebrating the achievements of young people across the county
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 are a celebration of excellence and achievement among our young people including those who:
- have triumphed over adversity
- care for people around them
- are working hard within their community to make a difference.
Nominees are identified by peers, youth leaders, teachers and family members as a special source of inspiration.
Seven district winners will be celebrated at the annual awards on Friday 14 November. The event at the Old Library in Mansfield will also see an overall county winner crowned. Guest will be entertained by young performers and musicians from County Youth Arts.
- Ashfield: Kyle Sherwin, lives in Sutton-in-Ashfield. Kyle was nominated because of his work as a dedicated volunteer both in his local community and also at an orphanage in India.
- Bassetlaw: Adam Bower, lives in North Wheatley near Retford. Adam has been nominated because of his commitment as a carer for his sister, as a member of the Bassetlaw Young People’s Forum and as a student.
