A new Garda-led competition is to honour young leaders in Clare for their outstanding civic awareness and contribution to the community.
The inaugural Clare Garda Division Youth Awards, the winners of which will be unveiled at a special event at the West County Hotel, Ennis on December 3, have been established by the county’s Community Policing Unit to recognise the selfless efforts of six individuals and one group towards others and/or their community.
The awards are open to teenagers from ages 14 to 19 from across the county, with a separate award for a group of young people involved in community activity. The closing date for entries is Wednesday, September 30.
Entry forms can be accessed on the Garda Siochana website www.garda.ie or at the website of sponsors, Shannon Airport : www.shannonairport.ie.
