Nominations sought for Young Good Citizens of 2018

West Mercia Police is seeking nominations from Shropshire for its Young Good Citizens of 2018.

The annual awards recognise and publicise the outstanding work done by young people in our communities. It celebrates those who have gone over and above to make a real difference or those who have overcome challenges in their own lives and have still been able to make a difference to others in the community.

Nominations are invited from schools, youth leaders, and members of the public.

In conjunction with the High Sheriff's of Shropshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion those shortlisted will be invited to an awards ceremony at West Mercia Police's Headquarters in Hindlip.

Local policing commander for Shropshire, Superintendent Jason Wells, said: "In my role I often hear about the fantastic contributions some of our young people across the county make to their local community.

"From stories about incredible bravery or overcoming personal challenges to helping others it is incredibly humbling to hear the real difference some of our young citizens are making.

"We want to make sure some of these great achievements are recognised and I would encourage anyone who knows someone under the age of 18 who has demonstrated they are a good citizen to nominate them."

Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said "It's important we recognise those who make a valuable contribution to making our communities safer, and I have been fortunate to meet some inspirational people in my role as commissioner. I look forward to these awards to recognise the positive impact young people have made."
