The Town Council is launching the search for our 2019 Jubilee Award winner. We are writing to you because of your role in one of Wetherby's schools or youth organisations or because we feel that you may come across outstanding young people in your work or voluntary role.
As you may remember from previous years, the Jubilee Award is given to an outstanding young person, under the age of 20, who has a connection to the Wetherby area. There are no set qualifying criteria for being given the award; previous winners have also included double world kickboxing champion Niamh Hutton, Leah and Teiana Vine for their charitable work raising awareness of Rett syndrome, James Eaton an A* Wetherby High School student and Michael Dopson for saving the life of another child at danger of drowning whilst visiting a Cornwall beach.
We would be grateful if you and your colleagues could have a think about the children and young people that you have come across in the past year and consider nominating one, or some of them for the award. There is no limit to the number of nominations that can be made and this is a great opportunity to recognise the achievements of the wonderful young people in our town.
All nominees are invited to an awards ceremony on Wednesday 19th December where their achievements will be celebrated. The honours board, a permanent reminder of the competition winner's achievements, in then unveiled.
Nominations must be received by 1st December 2019.
