Queen’s Young Leaders looking for more Caribbean applications for people working with youth or amazing young leaders

This came through my inbox, I thought I’d pass it along duly. If you are in the Caribbean and doing anything with the youth, you might want to nominate youths doing spectacular things or nominate someone doing something for the young folk:

I am writing on behalf of The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, Comic Relief and The Royal Commonwealth Society, with a request for you to support the Queen’s Young Leaders Awards.

Following the success of the 2015 Queen’s Young Leaders Awards, the search is now back on to find the 2016 Award winners. Here’s a short film showing the highlights from the ceremony https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1I5BaJ52rk. These awards will discover and celebrate inspirational young people from across the Commonwealth who are making a difference in their communities.

We are planning a burst of social media activity over the days before the application deadline, from now until the 7th September. We are asking influential artists from the Commonwealth nations to help us highlight this very special opportunity for young people in their own country, and encourage a final flurry of applications. We’d love to have some more applications from Grenada!

If you would like more information about the programme or how you can help us, please do not hesitate to contact me.
