The achievements of Lancashire’s young people will be celebrated at an awards ceremony in February.

Now the people of Lancashire are needed to help decide which youngsters are shortlisted for the Celebrate Youth finals event, organised by Lancashire County Council.

Coun Matthew Tomlinson said: “We’re asking anyone who works with young people to consider whether any of them is doing or has done something that deserves recognition.

“This is your chance to nominate a young person between the age of 12 and 19, or up to 25 if they have special educational needs, for a major Lancashire award. Whatever the achievement, whether sporting or artistic, volunteering or making a contribution in their local communities, please make sure you tell us about it.”

For more information call the council on 0300 123 6701.

The deadline for nominations is December 17.
