There is still time to make nominations for the 2024 Wolverhampton Young Citizen of the Year awards.

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.

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.

Vice chairman of the organising committee, former Wolves player Mel Eves, said: "The Young Citizen of the Year awards have gone from strength to strength over the years. Last year, we selected 10 young people as finalists and invited them with their guests to an awards ceremony, with many others receiving a certificate of commendation for their efforts.

"This year, we look forward to seeing plenty more fantastic nominations."

This year's awards ambassador, Wolves Captain Max Kilman, said: "Young people who use their initiative and show kindness to others deserve to be recognised, so I am very pleased to support the awards."

There are 2 age categories for the awards, 13 to 18 and 19 to 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 31 May, 2024.

Councillor Chris Burden, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, 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.”

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.
