Call for Entries to the Laois Offaly Garda Youth Awards
The Laois Offaly Garda Division in association with Supermac’s are delighted to announce the Laois Offaly Garda Youth Awards 2023. The awards celebrate outstanding young people between the ages of 13 and 21 years. Laois Offaly Gardaí along with Supermac’s recognise that a lot of good work is being done by young people in every community throughout both counties, which should be awarded.
Awards will be considered for nominated young people who by their presence make their communities a better place to live. There will be three individual District Award Winners, two from each area of Birr, Portlaoise Tullamore, along with one Special Achievement Award, which is open to any young person who has defied the odds, or overcome difficult circumstances and whose commitment deserves recognition. In addition, there will be one overall winner of the Laois Offaly Garda Youth Awards for 2020, one Voluntary Group Achievement Award, which is open to nominations of two or more young people whose combined efforts have contributed positively to their communities and one Community Safety Award, which recognises an individual or group who has made their community a safer place to live. The judging panel will decide upon one nominee in each category to go forward to represent the division at the National Garda Youth Awards, which take place in 2023.
The closing date for nominations is noon on Friday 24th February 2023.
This year’s Garda Youth Awards which will be held on 23rd March 2023 in the Killeshin Hotel, Portlaoise
