Record number of nominations for South Ayrshire Youth Awards

 28 November 2014  |  


This year's South Ayrshire Youth Forum Awards have seen a record number of nominations – with 224 outstanding people being put forward for the prestigious accolade in 14 categories.

Every year, the awards recognise, celebrate and reward the achievements of local young people aged between 14 and 25 years who live in South Ayrshire and help to acknowledge their generosity, skills and selfless acts which inspire people of all ages.

A panel of experienced youth workers has been hard at work assessing nominations and 3 finalists from each category will be invited to attend the awards ceremony where the winner will be announced on Thursday 4 December 2014 at Troon Concert Hall, where the overall winner will also be announced.

The categories are:

  • Personal Achievement in Sport
  • Helping the Community in Sport
  • Entertainment and Arts
  • Democracy
  • Citizenship
  • Health
  • Environment
  • Volunteering
  • Community Involvement
  • Learning and Development
  • Unsung hero
  • Paid staff award
  • Volunteer staff award
  • SAYF member award

This year the theme for the Youth Forum Awards is 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here' and will feature a jungle setting – with snakes, spiders, rats and much more helping to set the scene!

Councillor Margaret Toner, Lifelong Learning Portfolio Holder said: "I look forward to the South Ayrshire Youth Forum Awards every year, as they are the perfect way to celebrate all that is best about our great young people!

"This year we've seen a record number of nominations and I know the judges have been set an unenviable task to choose a winner in each of the fourteen categories.

"However, just to get a nomination is a real achievement and I'd like to congratulate each and every young person who was put forward, as it clearly shows their efforts have already been recognised and, as Bruce Forsyth might say, they're all my favourites!"
