The High Sheriff of Mid Glamorgan Youth Community Awards were set up in 2008 when finance was pledged by local firms, organisations and individuals in the County to support young people who were volunteering. The idea behind the scheme was to encourage community spirit and financially reward individuals and groups who have shown commitment and given of their time and effort; taking part in initiatives which stand out as being over and above what could normally be expected.
The success of the Awards has led to additional sponsorship and again this year a first prize of £1,000 will be made, together with other financial rewards.
You will note from the form that applications are invited from young people between the ages of 11 and 21, and also a group of young people again between 11 and 21, who have helped their local neighbourhood, an individual, family member or local organisation. The closing date is 25 January 2019.
