Garda Youth Awards
Wexford Garda Youth Awards 2016.
The response to the launch of the first ever County Wexford Garda Youth Awards has been brilliant and far exceeded our expectations. We have received over 60 worthy nominations from across County Wexford. It is very encouraging to see how much young people in Co Wexford are achieving. We wish to thank all those who took the time to fill out the forms. Unfortunately we cannot give awards to all the nominations. Our Judges have met and have selected 23 winners. The winners will be notified over the next week.
The lucky award winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony at Wexford County Council Buildings, Carricklawn, Wexford on March 31st at 7.30pm.
All the other nominations will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
On Monday 14th November 2016 the first Wexford Garda Youth Awards were launched.
The awards in association with Wexford County Council, are aimed at young people between the ages of 11 and 21 (throughout the County) who will be recognised for their positive work and contributions.
Do you know a young person that has contributed to their community, or excelled in sports, or overcome a serious illness or personal difficulty?
Do you know a young person that gives their own time to help others? or makes their community or school a better place? if so lets get this young person the recognition that they deserve.
Group entries of two or more young person’s will also be considered.
Application forms for nominations are available for downloading on the right and from any Garda Station in County Wexford or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org , email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Garda Paul Buckley, Gorey Garda Station at 053-9430690 who will send a copy to you by post. Details of the scheme and rules are outlined on the application form.
There has been a great response so far and we ask that all nominations be sent in prior to the closing date of 16th January 2017.
The lucky award winners will be presented with their awards at a ceremony at Wexford County Council Buildings, Carricklawn, Wexford and each winner will be invited with their family to receive an award on the night.
Alan Corcoran, South East Radio has graciously agreed to compere the event.
Finger food will also be provided on the night.
