Nominations deadline extended for Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the year Awards

The deadline for nominating young people for The Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the year Rotary awards has been extended until the end of July.

Organising Committee Chairman Rotarian Roger Timbrell, said:

‘Because the awards ceremony has been postponed until 15th September, we have decided to keep the web site open until the end of July to allow further nominations during the summer. Finalists will be invited to the awards ceremony. Many of those who are not selected as finalists, but who have made a significant contributions to their community, will receive certificates of commendation’.

As Wolves legend John Richards says in his video recorded to promote the awards ‘ These awards celebrate and recognise all the voluntary work that young people do. No act of kindness, however small, should go unrecognised. Just a nomination alone is a powerful way to say thank you’ To view his video and that of other supporters, including B.B.C. T.V. Repair Shop star Jay Blades  and singing star Beverley Knight, go to:   where you can follow the link to nominate.

Awards will be given in two age categories : 13 – 18 and 19 – 25.  The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday 15 September, and the ceremony will be hosted by the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Cllr. Sandra Samuels, who is one of the judges.

These awards are devised and are sponsored by the four Rotary Clubs in the city and organised in partnership with the City Council, The Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation and supported by Carvers Building Supplies Ltd. and the James Beattie Charitable Trust.
