There’s just over a week left for people to make nominations for their 2024 Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year.

The awards, now in their 11th year, recognise the achievements of young people in the city who have gone that extra mile to help others.

Previous winners include youngsters who have raised funds for charity, supported other members of their community, and made a difference to the people around them.

There are two age categories for the awards, 13-18 and 19-25. Anyone can nominate candidates, who must live or go to school or work in Wolverhampton. For more details and to make a nomination, visit Young Citizen of the Year Awards by next Friday, 31 May 2024.

Councillor Jacqui Coogan, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education, said: "The Young Citizen of the Year award is a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge young people in our city who go above and beyond in what they do. 

“I would encourage anybody who knows a young person who has put others first to nominate them for this fantastic award – but please hurry as the deadline for nominations is next Friday.”

The awards, which are run by the Rotary clubs of Wolverhampton, were launched in memory of Tom Warren, a former Rotarian and the city's Education Director for a quarter of a century.

This year’s awards are backed by the council, Collins Aerospace, Wolves Foundation, the Express & Star, Carvers Building Supplies, the James Beattie Charitable Trust and West Midlands Magazines.

A ceremony will take place later this year to reveal the winners of these prestigious awards.
