Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady has kick-started this year’s bid to find the city’s Young Citizen of the Year.
This year’s awards were officially launched at Wolves’ training ground Molineux, along with the Mayor, Councillors, Judges and a former winner.
Conor Coady said: “I am delighted to support these awards which recognises and celebrates young people who go the extra mile to help others.”
Organised by the city’s five Rotary clubs, in partnership with the Express & Star, Wolves, Waitrose and The Way Youth Zone, the awards are now in their fifth year. They recognise youngsters aged 14-19 who have made a significant contribution to the city and celebrate their achievements.
Anyone can nominate a young person who lives, goes to school or works within the borough of Wolverhampton. For more details about the award, plus entry forms, visit www.wolverhamptonyoungcitizen.org.uk
Nomination forms are also available from the Civic Centre and Waitrose on Penn Road and entries are open until the end of May.

The Wolverhampton Area round of the RIBI Young Musician Competition will take place at 4pm on Sunday, 4th February at the Wolverhampton Music Hub, Graisley Hill.
It’s being supported by all the local clubs, and we have a very strong, talented field of instrumentalists and vocalists. The adjudicators are our own Jerry Hobbs BEM and Simon Platford BA (Hons), LCTL, ABSM, PGCE, the musical director of the Jackfield brass band.
Our young people deserve your support. The competition has been arranged to take place on a Sunday in an effort to ensure as many Wolverhampton Rotarians and their families, along with members of the public are able to come along. Those who have attended in the past will know that you are in for a very enjoyable, entertaining experience.
Please contact Richard Green for further details and information-
The Shoeboxes after unloading in December. They then are sorted into box types then loaded onto the next vehicle set to leave for Eastern Europe and distribution by Rotary International and its partners.
Our Club thanks everyone who filled Shoeboxes this year helping us to deliver to the International Aid warehouse in Preston for onward shipment, the magnificent total of 163 boxes.
With a mixture of household items, toys for babies, youngsters and teenagers too, the gifts will bring much happiness to many vulnerable families in Eastern Europe.
Another example of Rotary in Action!
Thank you everyone.
