Orkney Youth Awards 2017

The annual Orkney Youth Awards will take place on Tuesday 7 November 2017 at the King Street Halls, Kirkwall and we are looking for your support to make it another night to remember.

The Youth Workers Forum come together to celebrate young folks’ achievements in the community through their participation in various awards including Youth Achievement, Duke of Edinburgh and the Saltire Awards.

We are looking for your support to ensure that young people across Orkney are recognised for their achievements – three ways in which you could help are:

1. If you are working directly with young people (aged 12-25) that are working towards ANY Youth Award please support and encourage them to complete the award/fill out time sheets so as they can receive their award on the night. Please fill out the nomination form before Wednesday 4 October 2017 to register interest.

2. We are seeking nominations for the Summit Award which is for an outstanding contribution to volunteering in the community.  The deadline for nominations is 5pm on Wednesday 4 October 2017.

3. Spread the word.

If you have any questions about the Youth Awards or how to nominate a young person for a Summit Award please do not hesitate to get in touch with

Brian Cromarty - brian.cromarty@vaorkney.org.uk
Cheryl.Rafferty - Cheryl.Rafferty@orkney.gov.uk
Laura Leonard – laura.leonard@vaorkney.org.uk

Thanks in advance for your support and we look forward to hearing from you.
