THE final call is being made for entries in the High Sheriff of Lancashire’s Young Citizen of the Year Award.

Young people have only days to submit their entries into the competition which recognises achievements.

The Awards take place every year and involve the High Sheriff inviting applications to a competition to find a young person under age 21 who has helped either their local neighbourhood, an individual, family member or local organisation.

The scheme is being administered by the Lancashire Partnership Against Crime (LANPAC) on behalf of the High Sheriff and the closing date for nominations is tomorrow.

This year, High Sheriff Jeremy Gorick, wants to hear about all kinds of projects that help make communities safer and better places to live, those which help to regenerate deprived areas, or those which help people to build confidence and unlock their potential.

Application forms are available online at; alternatively they are available from the LANPAC office on 01772 412733 or they can be collected from local police stations.
