RIBI Young Citizen Awards
RIBI Young Citizen Awards
To celebrate the amazing achievements of inspiring young people across Great Britain and Ireland, Rotary in Britain and Ireland launched the Young Citizen Awards nearly eight years ago. The RIBI Young Citizen Awards, in association with the BBC News Channel, showcase and celebrate the positive citizenship and important responsibilities assumed by many young people under the age of 25 in these islands.
RIBI Young Citizen Winners receive trophies and a cash prize of £500 at the RIBI Conference where the awards are presented live on the BBC News Channel.
Those nominated for our Young Citizen Award do not necessarily have to be working on a Rotary project to be eligible. What matters is that they, whether as individuals or part of a group, have made a positive difference which has been recognised by a local Rotary Club as worthy of nomination.
Every nominee will receive a personalised certificate from the RIBI President via their local Rotary Club recognising the achievement.
Many Rotary Clubs are already aware that the Young Citizen Awards exist in close proximity to the Diana Awards as far as objectives and outcomes go and have successfully been nominating their nominees for Young Citizens as Diana Award Holder nominees too. You can nominate any individual or group of young people between 9 & 18 who are making a positive and long-lasting difference to their communities.
