WoS Sponsor Award At Herald Youth Awards

THE Herald Youth Awards 2009 recognise the achievements of the most enterprising young people in Plymouth.

Most of the 12 awards are sponsored, and there are three main sponsors for the entire event: City College Plymouth, Apex Core Training and Plymouth City Council.

The three organisations have got behind The Herald's campaign to find the most deserving young people in the city and shout about their worthy achievements.

The awards were launched last month, and we want teachers, parents and others in the city to nominate those young people who have achieved great success in their activities over the past year.

We will then study the nominations and choose our winners, whose names will be announced at the awards ceremony at City College Plymouth's Kings Road campus.

The entries will be judged by a panel headed by The Herald's editor, Bill Martin.

The awards are, once again, part of Plymouth Enterprise Week. The five- day Enterprise Week events are being organised to champion business in the city and are a part of National Enterprise Week.

The different categories of awards this year are:

The Herald Young Hero Award, sponsored by UCP Marjon.

The Herald Young Business Award, sponsored by John Kitto Community College.

The School's Herald Team of the Year Award, sponsored by The Herald.

Crime Reduction Project of the Year, sponsored by Devon and Cornwall Police.

Environmental Project of the Year, sponsored by Wales and West Utilities.

Fundraising Project of the Year, sponsored by Weapons Of Sound.

The Prince's Trust Matthew Searle Award, sponsored by City College Plymouth.

The University of Plymouth Business Ideas Challenge Enterprise Progress Award, University of Plymouth Enterprise Week Flux Winners and University of Plymouth Student Volunteer of the year, all three sponsored by the university.

The Make Your Mark Challenge Award, sponsored by the I-Space facility at UCP Marjon.

The Plymouth Schools Enginuity Challenge.

Nominations are being taken by The Herald for the Young Hero, Young Person in Business, Environmental Project and Fundraising Project awards. Closing date for nominations is Monday, October 26. To nominate, please follow the instructions on www.thisis plymouth. co.uk/ya
