AWARDS | Help shine light on remarkable young people

The incredible achievements of young people are set to be celebrated in a special awards ceremony.

Teachers, carers, youth workers, parents and other adults are being asked to nominate any young person who has made an outstanding contribution to the community and deserve to be recognised.

Nottinghamshire Police has opened nominations today (29 January 2022) for the Live Our Best Life Awards, aimed at recognising the incredible hard work and fantastic achievements made by young people throughout the county.

The awards focus on those aged between eight and eighteen, who have shown incredible resilience, selflessness or have done something inspirational throughout the last year.

In total six awards are up for grabs with the winners set to win a series of gifts including an all-inclusive ceremony at Nottingham Forest Football Club featuring live entertainment, guest speakers, an iPad, a £100 gift card and unique experiences including a behind the scenes tour of our Police Dog Kennels and a VIP visit to the Defence Animal Training Regiment where they will get up close and personal with the military horses, dogs and staff.

The awards up for grabs include:

  • Lyrico Steede Award – awarded to a young person who may have been involved in gangs, knife crime or any other forms of criminality but has made significant progress and inspired others.
  • Rising Above Adversity Award – goes to a young person who despite their background or upbringing are an inspiration to others.
