7:56am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
If you know a young person who has achieved something special or has fought against the odds then the Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards would like to hear from you.
The awards, which celebrate their 21st birthday this year, recognise the achievements of young people aged under 35 who were born, live or work in Yorkshire and previous winners have included some very famous names, such as Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh, Olympic gold medallist triathlete Alistair Brownlee, top Leeds band the Kaiser Chiefs, Leeds Rhinos captain Kevin Sinfield, and England cricketers Michael Vaughan and Tim Bresnan.
The awards, sponsored by McCormicks Solicitors of Harrogate, have to date raised £950,000 for youngsters in Yorkshire. They are organised by the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation which supports projects for young people across the region.
The awards are open to young people who live, work or were born in Yorkshire and celebrate achievements in the fields of business, sport, education and the arts, in overcoming adversity and achieving fame and fortune.
Nomination forms for the 2013 Yorkshire Young Achievers’ Awards are available on yorkshireyoungachievers.co.uk or by phoning Sonia Jones at McCormicks Solicitors on 01423 530630. Nominations close on Friday, September 27.
