An Garda Síochána Donegal in association with the Joint Policing Committee launched the Donegal Garda Youth Awards on Tuesday last at the Council offices in Lifford.
The presentation of the Donegal Garda Youth Awards will take place in early 2020.
There are four overall awards categories:
– Individual award
– Group award
– Special achievement award
– Community Safety award (Individual or group)
All categories are for young people aged between 13 and 21 years on 31 st August 2019. The nomination process is open to everyone, so if you know of a young person who is committed to making a difference to their community, please put them forward, as every nominee will receive a certificate, even if they do not win an award.
This way, all nominees are recognised for their efforts, and the certificate is a very valuable item to have on a young person’s CV into the future.
Each Garda Division in the country will nominate one winner in each of the above four categories, to represent their Division at the National Youth Awards which will take place in Spring 2020.
The nomination forms are now available from any Garda Station in the Donegal Garda Division, and also online on the Joint Policing Committee Website at donegalcoco.ie/JPC
Nomination forms can be submitted by post to the Chief Superintendents Office, Donegal Garda National Youth Awards, Letterkenny Garda Station, New Line Road, Co. Donegal F92 PC03.
Completed forms can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
