Nominations sought for Young Citizen of the Year scheme.

EVERY MORAY COMMUNITY is blessed with young people who have demonstrated remarkable work in their communities – now those communities are being invited to nominate those they feel are deserving of recognition.

Nominations are now being sought for the annual Moray Young Citizen Awards (MYCA), operated jointly by Moray Council, Police Scotland, Elgin Rotary and distillery giants Diageo.

MYCA recognises the outstanding contributions being made in Moray’s communities by young people from all walks of life who go well beyond what can be expected.

The awards are open to both primary and secondary school groups, community groups or individuals. As well as recognising good community work, the awards help to build self-esteem in young people and develop their understanding of what citizenship means.

Details of the various award categories, along with nomination forms, are available online now.

Nominations close on Tuesday, January 31 with the awards ceremony taking place in late March.
