Pride of Somerset Youth Awards 2020
Do you know a young person under 20 who lives in Somerset and you are particularly proud of what they have achieved? If so why not nominate them for a special award!
They may have excelled in sport, music, the arts or academically. They could have helped raise money for charity, care for others, spent time volunteering or made a particular impact in their community. Or they may have undertaken a one-off act of heroism.
The awards are organised by BBC Somerset, the Rotary Club of Taunton, Bridgwater & Taunton College.
They recognise ANY young person who lives in Somerset and has done something in the last 12-months to make you proud.
The only requirements: they have to live in Somerset, and they must be under the age of 20 on Tuesday 31 March.
Nominations are open between now and close of play on 12 April. Judging will be in the following weeks. There are no specific categories for the awards.
The ceremony is at the Conference Centre at Bridgwater & Taunton College in Taunton on Wednesday 6 May. The event is part of Somerset Day, you can find more details here. BBC Somerset's Breakfast presenter Claire Carter and Mid-Morning presenter Simon Parkin will be hosting the awards.
