Still time to submit your nominations for tendring youth awards 2019

YOUNG people who have helped their community are wanted as nominations for the 2019 Tendring Youth Awards.

In their fourth year, the awards celebrate achievements by youngsters who live, work or study in Tendring, across a range of categories. Youth groups can also be nominated, and there is a category for adults to recognise those who support young people in Tendring.

The Harwich Haven Authority is the headline sponsor of this year’s Tendring Youth Awards, which are supported by Tendring District Council and Essex County Council.

There are only a few weeks left to submit your entries to the awards, with nominations closing on Friday, May 24 – after which judges will shortlist the finalists ahead of the presentation evening at Clacton’s Princes Theatre on July 2.

Karen O’Connor, Tendring Youth Awards Chairwoman, said nominations were needed from the public.

“We need your help to recognise these young people – we can only celebrate those we know about. So please get nominating – there’s no limit on how many people you put forward,” Karen said.     “We reach out to schools and youth organisations and encourage them to put their inspirational young people forward, but some of the best nominations are from the public.”
