There is still time to nominate inspirational young people for the Midlothian’s Young People Awards (MYPA) 2019.
These awards have been created by Midlothian Council in conjunction with the Lord-Lieutenant of Midlothian and are also supported by Midlothian Young Ambassadors. The purpose of the awards is to highlight the fantastic achievements of amazing young people in the area.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 31 May 2019.
The five award categories reflect the various positive contributions of young people to Midlothian. The categories are:
* Caring and Volunteering
* Local Community
* Sport and Physical Activity
* Arts and Culture
* Achievement in Learning
In addition to the five category awards, there is also a sixth Midlothian Prize that will be awarded to an overall winner from amongst the winners in all the categories.
You can nominate any young person living, working or studying in Midlothian or a youth group whose contribution to their local community deserves to be recognised.
Nominations for each of the awards can be made by individuals, youth organisations, schools and colleges and employers. Nominees should be aged between 8-26 years old at the time of their nomination.
