Tim Warren, Leader of Bath & North East Somerset Council has launched the ‘Our Young Stars’ campaign to discover and celebrate the most extraordinary young people across our region.
BANES Council are now asking the residents of Bath & North East Somerset to nominate a child or young person who they feel has achieved something special, however big or small, which deserves recognition.
There are five main categories for the awards; Courage, Education, Innovation, Sport and Unsung. The awards are open to any child or young person aged 18 or under at 31 December 2018 who live in Bath and North East Somerset. Nominations close on 30 November 2018.
In December a panel of judges will look at all the nominations and decide upon three of the most deserving children in each category to become finalists. These fifteen finalists will then be invited to a Gala Awards Dinner on 9th March 2019 for a celebration of their achievements, where the winners will be announced with awards being presented to all finalists.
BANES Councnil have asked that we attached a copy of their poster and nomination form and to promote the campaign in as many ways as you possibly. Nominations can be made online or emailed/posted as below.
