Great Yarmouth Inspirational Young Person’s Award


The deadline for members of the public to nominate an Inspirational Young Person in the constituency of Great Yarmouth has been extended to Friday 7th April 2017. The competition was launched in
the run-up to Christmas when people were busy preparing for the festivities and owing to the interest generated by the competition, it has been decided to allow local residents extra time to nominate their inspirational young person. You can nominate someone online here.

I’ve launched an exciting new competition recognising some of our best young people in the constituency. Travelling around the constituency, I am privileged to meet so many people who work tirelessly for their community or go the extra mile to help their neighbours. The ones that stand out, even more than usual, are the young people who volunteer at a local club or spend their time caring for a relative. Often they go unrecognised. I wanted to change that.

That’s why I launched the Great Yarmouth Inspirational Young Person’s competition to recognise these younger heroes. Do you know a young person who deserves special recognition for the work they do in their community? Perhaps they are a carer, volunteer for an organisation or have raised money for a charity. Maybe they are just inspirational to you.

Courtesy of the CDG Dining Group and Beds and Bars the winner will winner in the 12-16 category will win a 2-night London trip, for two people, with a meal in a London restaurant (travel not included) and in the 7-11 category a Samsung tablet. The two categories will be judged by Dame Rachel de Souza, CEO of the Inspiration Trust, Anne Edwards, Editor of the Great Yarmouth Mercury, and Graham Hacon, CEO and Founder of 3Sun Group.
