Do you know an exceptional, inspirational young person? Nominate them for a St David Award
Education and Skills Minister Huw Lewis has urged anyone who knows an exceptional, inspirational young person to nominate them for a prestigious St David Award.
The St David Awards, established by the Welsh Government, aim to better recognise and celebrate the exceptional achievements of people from all walks of life in Wales.
Huw Lewis said:
“We are privileged to have so many amazing young people doing fantastic things here in Wales.
“Many volunteer; some do charity work; some are carers; some are high academic achievers; some are artistically gifted; some are able to do things others can’t; some have triumphed against adversity; some are simply heroes.
“All are a credit to this country and deserve recognition for their achievements.
“That’s why I am today calling for people across Wales to nominate a young person for a St David award. If you think someone deserves recognition show them how much you appreciate them, go online and put them forward for this prestigious prize.”
The Young Person award is open to any young person up to 25 years of age. The nomination period for the awards is open now and you can nominate someone you know, someone you have heard about or even yourself.
You can nominate people in eight award categories. These are Bravery, Citizenship, Culture, Enterprise, Innovation and Technology, Sport, the International Award and the Young Person’s Award.
You can nominate deserving individuals until the deadline of 5 November this year. The awards ceremony, where the winners will be announced, will be held in Cardiff on 13 March 2014. The awards are a special and distinctive Welsh badge of honour, and will take place annually Spotted something? Got a story?
