Sidmouth Young Citizen nomination call
Second year launch of Sid Valley Rotary Club’s Young Citizen Award scheme
NOW is the time to make nominations for Sidmouth’s second Young Citizen of the Year.
Sid Valley Rotary Club teamed up last year with the Sidmouth Herald, to launch this new award and is now looking for nominees in two age categories – up to 14 and 14 to 21-year-olds - who have made an outstanding contribution to the life of the community.
Rotarian Mark Williams, the club’s service projects committee chairman, is visiting schools in the Sid Valley to distribute nomination forms, which should be completed and returned to the Sidmouth Herald address shown, before Friday, October 22.
Mark said: “As a Rotary club we have always sought to support and recognise the younger members of our community.

“We have, over the years, not only given financial support to the educational community in the valley, but also have actively given of our time and expertise to a number of initiatives, whether it be supporting literacy programmes in the infant schools or mentoring sixth form students at Sidmouth College we have as individuals and club members always striven to encourage young individuals to achieve their potential.”

“Sid Valley Rotary Club felt that the recognition of young persons showing a commitment to the community, or exemplary service to an individual, was worthy of recognition and formed a natural extension of the vocational activities that we as a club were already committed to.”
Acting Editor Steve Hutchings said: “We are appealing to parents, friends, teachers and youth leaders that know of remarkable contributions made by young individuals, to nominate them so that we can publicly celebrate their achievements.”
Remember, this award is open to primary-age children as well as those of secondary school age and older.
