Chance to Reward Young People Who Make a Difference
Lions Clubs in Solihull are hoping that young volunteers between the ages of 11-18 on February 21st 2013 will share with them their experiences of how community service improves lives and localities. Young people are asked to describe how their efforts have made a difference either to the environment or to the lives of people living in their community. The choice of how to share the experience is down to the young volunteer, but some suggestions are that it could be via a youtube video, flickr slide show, poetry, rap, a website, a scrapbook or what ever form the young person chooses. All participants will be entered into the Roy White Memorial Trophy, an annual competition hosted by the Lions Clubs of District 105M. The winning participant will receive a trophy to hold for a year, together with a replica which is theirs to keep, a suitable voucher for £25 and a cheque for £100 for their nominated charity.
A spokesperson for Castle Bromwich Lions said that young people often receive bad press, but the vast amount of voluntary service they do in the community goes unreported. The aim of the award is to highlight the positive activities undertaken by the majority of young people and to share experiences.
