Fareham Borough Council is seeking nominations for kind hearted youngsters and adults for the 2014 Citizen of Honour and Young Citizen of Honour Awards. The closing date for nominations is Friday 31 January 2014.
There are three different categories of nomination, they are as follows:
Young Citizen of the Year (4-11 years)
This award celebrates an outstanding act of bravery, a regular selfless act for others, or for overcoming and learning to adapt to a registered disability.
Young Citizen of the Year (12-18 years)
This award is in recognition of community and voluntary service which benefits the local community. Like the Citizen of Honour Award young people may be volunteering with a local charity or voluntary group, or providing on-going care to an individual.
Citizen of Honour (18 years plus)
This category is awarded in recognition of community and voluntary service which benefits the local community.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward, said: "The Citizen of Honour awards are the perfect way for someone to nominate a resident of Fareham who regularly puts others before themselves, has helped others and the community, or may have shown an act of bravery. It is a celebration of those unsung heroes living in Fareham, who have made a real difference to people living locally ".
Nomination forms and further information can be found at: www.fareham.gov.uk/citizenawards.
Winners will attend the Mayor Making event in May to receive their award badges and certificates and will receive invitations as VIPs to a number of Civic events and a family ticket to the gala performance of the Christmas pantomime. The Young Citizen(s) of Honour will also be invited to switch on the Christmas lights in Fareham with the Mayor.
