Aim of the Award

The County Team believe it is essential to recognise those fantastic leaders and their teams providing inspiring programmes to young people across the county. This scarf was designed to give recognition and celebrate leaders doing this: Inspiring Programme Champions.

How it works

Nominations can be made at any time via the form below and will be reviewed six monthly by a panel that will be made up of the following:

  • Deputy County Commissioner Programme
  • A District Commissioner – not from the nominee’s district
  • County Youth Commissioner
  • A Young Leader

The Criteria

We aim to keep the criteria simple. We ask those nominating to consider if the nominee:

  • Is an Amazing Leader,
  • Delivers inspiring programmes shaped by young people that make an impact in our communities,
  • It is well recognised as delivering and driving a challenging, relevant and rewarding programme for every young person.

Leaders can be nominated as individuals or as part of a team. We try to encourage nominations for a leader for each section in each district every year. The scarf will then be awarded as part of the county’s annual presentation evening or AGM with a follow-up presentation at their group if they want that to happen.
