The search is on for Garstang’s outstanding young people!

GARSTANG “YOUNG CITIZEN OF THE YEAR” AND “JUNIOR CITIZEN OF THE YEAR” AWARDS 2012

An initiative of Garstang Town Council – we are looking for 2 inspiring young local people. One aged between 4 and 11 years old, and the other between 12 and 18 years old.

Do you know someone who deserves to hold the title “Citizen of the Year”?

It could be a personal achievement or selfless act….sporting, caring, fundraising, helping others, or achieving something against all the odds. Who do you think deserves this accolade?

Trophies have been donated by Cllr Lady Atkins and Carrs Jewellers, and there will be prizes for the runners up.

The entrants will be judged by a panel of local people, and the winner will be notified soon after the closing date on September 28th. The prizes will be presented at a ceremony during Local Democracy week in October. This ceremony will also see the inaugural meeting of Garstang’s first ever youth council and the office of “young mayor” will be bestowed upon one elected young councillor.
