The Mayor of Bath – Councillor Paul Crossley – has launched his search for a ‘Mayor’s Young Citizen’. To enter, young people must live in Bath, or attend a school/college in the city or belong to a Bath-based group.
The young person chosen to hold the position for one year will receive £150 and be invited to some of the events the 789th Mayor of Bath will attend throughout his term in Office. The runner-up will receive £50.
The Award began 22 years ago to counteract some negative publicity about young people by celebrating their many fine achievements. This individual award is for a 16, 17 or 18 year old who has made good progress at school or given service to the local community. Letters have been sent to local senior schools, colleges and youth organisations with a nomination form.
The Mayor said “Many young people contribute so much to the life of Bath. This Award is about recognising and celebrating young people. If you know of a young person who you think deserves this recognition please nominate them’.
Candidates and their nominator will both need to be available to attend a 10-minute interview on the afternoon of Monday 11 July and the Presentation Ceremony will take place on Thursday 14 July at 5.30 pm at the Guildhall.
A nomination form can be downloaded from www.mayorofbath.co.uk, emailed on request via firstname.lastname@example.org, or collected from the Guildhall Reception. Nominations need to be received in the Mayor’s Office, Guildhall, Bath, Somerset, BA1 5AW by Monday 4 July.
