The search is on for the borough’s next young superstar as the Mayor’s Youth Award’s launches.
Now in their 7th year the uplifting awards, organised by Rochdale Youth Service, recognise and celebrate the fantastic achievements, contributions and developments of young people across the Rochdale borough.
Mayor of Rochdale, Councillor Ian Duckworth, said: “These awards reward the young people who are making a positive impact in our borough through their own hard work, compassion and dedication. It is important that they get recognised for the work they are doing as we are all very grateful for it.”
We are looking for nominations to recognise young people who have made a real difference to the people in their lives, whether it’s through work in the community, sporting achievement or commitment to their friends and family.
Nominations are now open and can be made on at
Mayor's youth awards and the closing date for nominations is Sunday, 18 February 2018.
Anyone can nominate a young person who lives in the borough aged 11-19, or up to 25 if they have a disability.
Diane Higgins, from Rochdale Borough Council’s youth service, said: “These awards are always so inspiring, we get amazing nominations in that really do to reflect the remarkable talent and dedication we have in our young people. It’s a proud occasion for the council’s youth service and we can’t wait to read the new nominations.”
The winners will be selected by young people from Milnrow Youth Club, who are organising this year’s Award ceremony and those shortlisted for an award and all nominees will be invited to the award ceremony on Thursday, 19 April 2018.
