During October and November residents, schools and organisations across Bath and North East Somerset are being asked to nominate a young person, aged 18 or less, for the new Our Young Stars Awards. The awards will recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of extraordinary young people in the region.
Announcing the awards B&NES Council leader Tim Warren said: “Across Bath and North East Somerset there are many selfless and courageous young people, who may have forsaken some of the joys and freedom of childhood to make a difference to the lives of others or to achieve great things in the face of adversity or personal challenges. We sometimes hear their stories through the media, but mostly the actions of these young people are unrecognised. I think it’s really important to uncover and share their stories and celebrate their achievements.
“I am particularly grateful to our sponsors, Wessex Water, Bath Rugby, IESIS and Kersfield, who have enthusiastically backed these new awards and are looking forward to meeting the finalists.
There are five main categories for the awards: Education; Unsung; Courage; Sport; Innovation
