THERE is less than a month remaining to get your entries in for the second Youth Achievement Awards, run by the Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard together with Fenland District Council.

The awards will recognise young people's service to the Fenland community, but entries need to be in before February 3.

We are asking people to nominate a young person who, they feel, has helped to make Fenland an even greater place to live. The young person should be aged between 11 and 18.

The members of Fenland Youth District Council will judge the entries and pick an overall winner.

The youth district council was formed in 2006 and comprises of 14 young people from schools and colleges across the district.

Lewis Punter, chairman of the youth district council, said: "It is important that the work which young people do in the community is recognised. They make a valuable contribution to helping to improve the lives of people in the area and we should be proud of it."

To nominate someone for the award, complete the form printed here and, in no more than 50 words, explain why you are putting this young person forward.

The winner and all nominees will be presented with framed certificates at a special presentation evening later this year, hosted by the youth district council.

n Send your completed nomination forms to Youth Achievement Awards, 51 High Street, March, PE15 9JJ. Alternatively, visit the Youth Achievement Awards micro-site on our websites.
