• Bovey Tracey
    Young Citizen of the Year 2018

Bovey Tracey Town Council's Young Citizens of the Year Awards aim to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of young people in Bovey Tracey and Heathfield that might otherwise go unrecognised.

If you know such a young person, or small group, why not nominate them for this year's awards. We are particularly keen to hear about youngsters who have overcome challenges in their own lives or been able to make a significant difference to others in their community.

How do I nominate someone?

We need your help to find young people aged from 7 - 18 years who have demonstrated their commitment to helping others and making a difference in the community either:

  • Individually
  • Through an individual contribution to a group activity
  • Through actively supporting a group activity

Examples can include those acting as volunteers, young carers, mentors or even one-off actions of an extraordinary nature.

All you have to do is fill in the nomination form below and explain how you think your young person(s) has demonstrated their help for others in the community.

They may have helped family or friends or other members of a wider community as a result of their own initiative or an organised activity.

We are happy to accept nominations of small groups (maximum three people).

When proposing a young person(s) you must obtain the Parent / Guardian's permission.

The closing date for nominations is 28th February 2018

Nominees must be:

  • Aged from 7 to 18 years 
  • Live in the parish of Bovey Tracey
  • Have permission for his/her name to go forward for consideration for the award

Each qualifying nominee will be awarded a certificate recognising their achievements and they may also be nominated for the overall Young Citizen of the Year Award. These awards will be presented at the Annual Town Meeting in the Town Hall on 28th March 2018 and all participants will be invited to attend.
