Ward & Partners Children's Awards searches for sporting stars

by Lauren Abbott

The football is still going well in Russia and Wimbledon is underway.

And while the UK is in the midst of a sporting summer, the Children's Awards judging panel will also be teaming up shortly to look at how this year's potential winners are lining up.

There is just over a week now until the nomination period for this year's awards closes.

Nominations close on July 20

Among the seven categories looking for nominations is the Going for Gold award, which seeks achievements in the world of sport as well as music, visual and performing arts.

It is directed at children who are tackling and enjoying a hobby regardless of disability.

Are you a football coach or dance teacher who is witnessing some incredible achievement from one of your pupils? Do you belong to a rugby club, athletic club, tennis club or performing arts group in which a young person is doing amazing things?

Do you think it is time they were given some recognition?

Going for Gold is a category specifically designed for children and young people who are winning awards or accolades or excelling in exams for a talent or hobby, regardless of the restrictions their disability might be placing upon them.

Alternatively the award could also recognise someone who has fought serious illness whilst being able to continue within their sport, music or chosen art.

Judges are keen to hear from any team, coach, group, leader, volunteer or teacher who knows of a hard-working, talented, determined child who richly deserves a nomination in this category.

Nominations can be made using the form on this page or also at www.kentonline.co.uk/wardawards

At the end of the nomination process, judges will view all of the entries before finalists are invited to a special awards lunch in the autumn to announce and celebrate the winners.
