Time is running out to vote for Wolverhampton’s Young Citizen of the Year.

The annual awards recognise young people who have gone the extra mile, whether it’s by showing good citizenship, volunteer work or simply helping others out in some way. 

You can cast your vote by visiting Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year. Anyone can nominate, and the vote officially closes on Wednesday 31 May, 2023. Nominees must be between the ages of 13 and 25 and based in the city of Wolverhampton.

Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre will be hosting the awards ceremony in September and will be amongst the judges who will review the list of nominations to select a shortlist. 

They will be invited to attend the awards ceremony with their nominators and guests, while the unsuccessful nominees will all receive letters of commendation.

Mayor Councillor Dr Hardacre 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, and this is something I feel very privileged to be a part of.”

The awards are devised and organised by the Rotary Clubs of Bilston and Wolverhampton West, Tettenhall, Wednesfield and Wolverhampton with the support of the City of Wolverhampton Council, Carvers Building Supplies, the Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers Foundation, Wolverhampton West Magazine, Bilston Magazine, Wednesfield Magazine and the James Beattie Trust.
