Dame Mary Perkins, founder of Specsavers, has a special request for Londoners to be on the lookout for local heroes. The British Citizen Youth Awards (BYCA) celebrates and recognises the amazing achievements of young people who support the community, local charities and society as a whole.
If you are selected as a winner, you could go on to attend a day at The Palace of Westminster in October 2017, where Specsavers founder Dame Mary Perkins will present the medals to those individuals who have done amazing things for their communities.
The British Citizen Youth Award is open to all children who will be under the age of 16 in October 2017. To apply, please email email@example.com with BCYA in the subject line. The deadline for all entries is Wednesday 9 August 2017.
