Children deserve the chance of an award

The young people of today are the future leaders of tomorrow, and that is why the Pride of Northumberland awards want to recognise them for their contribution to the community.

The Child of Achievement award highlights the hard work and dedication, or the support and care that a young person has achieved despite their tender years.

It may be a youngster that has exceeded beyond expectations, someone who has battled against the odds to achieve a target or someone who has been a major support to another.

Whatever the reason, we need you to enter you nominations for this award.

Fill in the form below and send it to the address in the article left, or on the bottom right of the entry form.

Remember to get them in by August 16.

You have to be in it to win it.
