Search launched to find the Lancashire Young Citizen of the Year

Do you know a young person who has done something exceptional this year? Would you like to see someone awarded for their bravery, kindness or for making a difference in their community?

The search is now on to find someone deserving of the Lancashire Young Citizen of the Year award – and we are asking you to help us find them.

If you know someone aged under 21 who has done something selfless for another person, organisation or their local community we want to hear from you.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 awards and can be submitted anytime up until January 31st 2020.

Winners and runners up will be selected by the High Sheriff of Lancashire, Ralph Assheton and a panel of judges from the Lancashire Partnership Against Crime, Lancashire Constabulary and the sponsors, University of Central Lancashire.

All finalists will then be invited to attend a presentation at Lancashire Constabulary Headquarters in March 2020, where the winner will receive £500 along with a specially commissioned trophy and certificate from the High Sheriff and Chief Constable Andy Rhodes.

Two runners up will also receive £100 and a certificate.

The countywide awards take place every year to celebrate the county’s most caring young residents. These could be people who have helped either their local neighbourhood, an individual, family member or local organisation.
