This Friday (13th June) is the cut-off point to nominate a special young person to be recognised as part of the annual 4Uth awards.
Every year, Nottinghamshire County Council teams up with the Nottingham Post to host the awards.
Whether you are a parent, friend, teacher, youth worker or just know someone in the community who deserves recognition, this is your opportunity to highlight their achievements.
The awards are a celebration of excellence and achievement, including those who have triumphed over adversity, those who care for people around them and those who are working hard within their community.
Nominees are identified by peers, youth leaders, teachers and family members as a special source of inspiration.
A number of case studies from early nominees over recent weeks have been featured in the local media in recent weeks, including Mansfield’s Ross Kemp.
