THIS award is to reward those under the age of 17 who rarely receive the recognition they deserve. Young people often attract the wrong kind of attention and scrutiny but there are some amazing children in our community whose efforts and commitment would put most adults to shame.
Those nominated could have battled against serious illness, without letting it get in the way of their daily routine, or they may have been an inspiration to others by dedicating time and effort to helping people. Alternatively, they could be a leading light in their sport or hobby, gaining recognition for their efforts and putting Jersey on the map, or simply excelling at every level.
Children are our future, and this award will help us to celebrate them.
