The team at Specsavers in Ringwood is wanting to seek out local heroes to go on and win an award from the British Youth Citizen Awards' scheme.

What is required

Dame Mary Perkins is a patron and supporter of the BCYA.  As founder of Specsavers, she has asked all communities to get voting so we can celebrate the amazing things that young people in Ringwood have done to support our society, charities and communities!

What you will win

Winners will get 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 great stories of kindness, bravery and tenacity to share.

How to enter

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 with BCYA in the subject line. The deadline for all entries is Wednesday 9 August 2017.
