IN SEARCH OF SURREY’S YOUNG SUPERSTARS!
This year we have joined together with top Surrey venue, the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre to organise the second Surrey Young Superstars Awards, which will include a new Courageous Superstar category, to spotlight the many achievements of young people in the county.
The ground-breaking awards, supported by Surrey Life and A+ magazine, as well as SATRO, also seek to raise awareness of Haslemere Travel’s chosen charity, Guildford-based Challengers, which provides inclusive play and leisure for disabled children and young people in Surrey.
Launched last year, the 2013 Surrey Young Superstars awards rewarded and showcased young people’s efforts and honoured them for their hard work and achievements in Surrey. The awards culminated in a glittering awards ceremony hosted by top comedian Rob Brydon.
The awards event for all 2014 prizewinners will take place on May 9th 2014 at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Mill Studio. Award categories, include:
* Caring Superstar
* Volunteering Superstar
* Business Superstar
* Sporting Superstar *Fundraising Superstar (5-12 years)
* Fundraising Superstar (13-19) * Courageous Superstar
The new category, Courageous Superstar, will seek to reward a young person who has overcome adversity, be that illness, disability or disadvantage, to achieve and exceed their goals with a positive and inspiring attitude on those around them.
Judged by the panel of organisers and sponsors, the winner of the top award, Superstar of the Year, will receive four tickets to the popular Yvonne Arnaud Christmas pantomime in 2014, in addition to an award trophy and certificate.
“These awards will once again seek to be a wonderful showcase for young people in Surrey, to demonstrate their ambition and be honoured for their bravery and hard work,” said Gemma Antrobus, managing director of Haslemere Travel.
Madeleine Coleman, Funding Executive at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre said: “We are delighted to be a partner with Haslemere Travel for the Surrey Young Superstars event. To acknowledge and reward young people for their kind acts of volunteering, fundraising and charity initiatives in the local community is very important to the Theatre.”
The entry date has now passed and judging has taken place. We look forward to seeing the winners at the awards ceremony in May 2014.
