Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady has kick-started this year’s bid to find the city’s Young Citizen of the Year.
This year’s awards were officially launched at Wolves’ training ground Molineux, along with the Mayor, Councillors, Judges and a former winner.
Conor Coady said: “I am delighted to support these awards which recognises and celebrates young people who go the extra mile to help others.”
Organised by the city’s five Rotary clubs, in partnership with the Express & Star, Wolves, Waitrose and The Way Youth Zone, the awards are now in their fifth year. They recognise youngsters aged 14-19 who have made a significant contribution to the city and celebrate their achievements.
Anyone can nominate a young person who lives, goes to school or works within the borough of Wolverhampton. For more details about the award, plus entry forms, visit www.wolverhamptonyoungcitizen.org.uk
Nomination forms are also available from the Civic Centre and Waitrose on Penn Road and entries are open until the end of May.
