Nottinghamshire Police’s Youth Outreach team has once again opened its nominations today (8 January 2024) for the Live Our Best Life Awards.
The awards, which are now in their fourth year, are open to anyone who lives or goes to school in Nottinghamshire, who is aged between eight and eighteen and who have done something inspirational throughout the last year.
Members of the public are being asked to nominate any young person who has made an outstanding contribution to their community and deserves to be recognised for their talents and hard work.
Nottinghamshire Police want to help recognise the incredible hard work and fantastic achievements made by young people throughout the county and welcome all nominations.
In total, there are six awards up for grabs and prizes are available including iPads, gift cards, and experience days including a visit to our Police Dog kennels!
The awards include:
Lyrico Steede Award – awarded to a young person who may have been involved in gangs, knife crime or any other forms of criminality but has made significant progress and inspired others
Rising Above Adversity Award – goes to a young person who despite their background or upbringing are an inspiration to others
Young Leader of the Year Award – awarded to a young person who is leading by example and is a role model to their peers through student, sport, or youth work
Young Performer of the Year Award - goes to someone who has displayed amazing talents such as singing, dancing, rapping, acting and anything creative
Bringing People Together Award – awarded to a person who has tried to bring the community together or fought to eradicate hate or racism
Young Inspiration Award – awarded to someone who has done something inspirational and shown incredible resilience or something selfless to help others
Nominations close at 12pm on Monday March 4, and the six winners will be chosen by a panel of judges, along with six runners up. An all-inclusive awards ceremony, hosted at the Village Hotel in Nottingham, featuring live entertainment will then take place to celebrate these incredible young people.
