Do you know an amazing young person who’s exceeded expectations or gone above and beyond for others this year?
Cllr Trey Campbell-Simon, H&F’s lead councillor for youth advancement, said: “We have so many talented, hardworking and generous young people living in H&F. Now’s your time to celebrate and shout about their achievements. Nominate them for a Youth Achievement Award today.”
Nominees must be aged between 11 to 25 years old, and live, work or go to school in H&F. Their nomination must relate to an achievement from the last two years, 2021-2023.
