Nominations are being sought for the West Norfolk Young Hero Awards. If you know a young person who’s done something amazing for their family, friends, neighbours or a local school or voluntary group, then now’s the time to nominate for a West Norfolk Young Hero Award.
The awards have been established by KLFM and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk to recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of young people in West Norfolk. They will be presented at a special ceremony at King’s Lynn Town Hall on January 13.
Nominations can be made in a total of six categories:
• Achievement through education (primary school): The award is designed to recognise all achievement by children of primary school age, including academic success or improvement, outstanding attendance or an overall contribution to school life.
• Achievement through education (secondary school): This award is designed to recognise all achievement by children of secondary school age, ranging from great academic success to improved performance or attendance or a general contribution to school life.
• Carer of the Year: If you know a young person who gives up their own time to care for a friend or relative, please nominate them in this category.
• Emergency Services Award: This award is for any young person who has come into contact with the emergency services for any reason over the last 12 months.
• Volunteer of the Year: Do you know a young person who volunteers their time for a community group? If so, please nominate them in this category.
• Mayor’s Special Award: This award is for young people who perhaps do not fit into any of the above categories and will be awarded at the discretion of the Mayor of West Norfolk.
