The Stonehaven and District Community Council (SDCC)is urging people to get their nominations in for the Hannah Dyson Award.

The candidate must have a strong association with Stonehaven.

The award is given to a young person who is under 18 years of age and who has achieved outstanding youth achievement, excellence or merit in one of the following areas: academic or sporting success, an act of bravery, outstanding caring or community service, special achievement despite limitations imposed by hardship, disability or long term illness or any other appropriate kind of excellence.

The nomination must be in writing and must include a supporting statement; it should be submitted by a person not related to the candidate.

Submissions must be received by the secretary (including complete name, address and telephone number/e mail) by Friday, December 12.

The candidate and their parent or guardian must agree to the publicity that will be given to the award.

The Youth Awards Committee will recommend one candidate to the full council, based on the supporting statement and any other available and relevant information.

The final decision will be made public early in the New Year and will consist of a parchment scroll and a small monetary reward.
