Apply for special awards and win a £100 prize

First published in Abingdon

If you are aged 11 to 18 you could win a £100 cash prize just for doing what you love best.

Young people in the Vale of the White Horse are being invited by the district council to apply for one of three awards for sports, citizenship and the arts.

A total of £5,000 is up for grabs with individual awards worth up to £100 each to recognise achievement and help develop talents. The application process opened yesterday and there are three different awards available.

The citizenship awards are for those who are dedicated to helping out in their community, for example through helping in an old people’s home or acting as a mentor for other young children.

The arts awards recognise achievement in music, dance, drama, creative writing, painting, sculpture, photography, video production, multimedia and crafts.

The sports awards are intended to reward those representing their county in any sport.

The closing date for applications is December 21.
