People are being urged to nominate a young person they know for the Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year Award ahead of the deadline at the end of this month.

Devised by the city’s Rotary Clubs alongside the City of Wolverhampton Council, Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation, the Express and Star, The Way Youth Zone and Waitrose, the award celebrates 13 to 19 year olds who live, learn or work in the city and have gone the extra mile to help other people or organisations.

The closing date for nominations is Friday 31 May, 2019, and the award has already had support from stars such as Wolves Captain Conor Coady, soul sensation Beverley Knight and comedienne Doreen Tipton, who have all recorded video messages saying why they think the awards are vital for the city and its young people.

City of Wolverhampton Council’s Director of Education Meredith Teasdale said: “We are lucky to have thousands of wonderfully talented young people across our city whose contributions deserve to be recognised.

“I would urge everybody to nominate a young person they know before the deadline on 31 May, so that together we can share their success.”
