Family, friends, teachers, and other professionals and community leaders across Leicestershire are being reminded to nominate inspiring young people for this year’s Lord-Lieutenant’s Award before the closing date later this month.
Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire, Mike Kapur OBE, said: “As in previous years, the award categories highlight bravery, creativity, strength of spirit and selflessness.
“I always look forward to hearing about the remarkable efforts of our amazing young people and their outstanding endeavours. I’m asking for your help to make sure every eligible young person who deserves recognition is nominated for this year’s awards so that we can all have an opportunity to celebrate their achievements.”
The award scheme is open to all 13 to 19-year-olds living or attending full-time education in Leicester or Leicestershire. Nominations can be made by other young people, their school, parent or carer, as well as any other agency or individual.
People can nominate for Young Person of Courage, Young Volunteer, Young Leader, and Young Artist. To find out more about the awards or to nominate a young person, visit www.leicestershire.gov.uk/llawards before midnight on Friday, February 17.
The finalists and their parents or guardians will be invited to a special ‘red carpet’ awards evening and dinner, hosted by the Lord-Lieutenant, to be held in the spring at County Hall.
