We want to highlight and reward exceptional achievements of Spennymoor’s Young People that, more often than not, go unseen and unrewarded.
This is where you come in!
We’d like to ask you (‘you’ can be an adult, a group leader or a young person yourself) to nominate a young person/persons who you think deserves to be recognised for their hard work, exceptional talent or care.
Whether it’s caring for others, or giving up their time to improve the lives of people around them, young people can play a vital role in making our community a better place to live.
Please nominate a young person today!
AGED 18 & UNDER
These awards are supported by… Spennymoor Town Council and Spennymoor Youth Council

Young People’s Choice Award
We are looking for a person who encourages young people to go that extra mile and contribute in their community. We want to recognise someone who is working to make a difference in Spennymoor, raising awareness of the positive contribution that young people make to society. This award is for anyone who you feel deserves recognition, a teacher, club leader or volunteer – let them know they’re appreciated!
A young person or group of young people who have been inspirational because of the way they impact on their community through their actions and their attitudes. They will be a young person or group who has gone to great lengths to improve the community in which they live?
For example. ‘A young person or group of young people who have had impact on the environment such as recycling, cleaning up an area of the Town, etc.’ Do you know a young person or group who support the vulnerable in the community or keeps others informed. A young person or group who has made a difference in community safety, reducing vandalism. If so, let us know!
The School’s Award*
Each school is asked to nominate one pupil who has most remarkably demonstrated the 7 Olympic/Paralympic values, of:
Respect Friendship Excellence Courage Determination Inspiration Equality
Whilst these values underpinned the Olympic Games as a set of principles, they can be applied to education and our lives –not just sport. These values help all of us to live and achieve our ambitions and dreams fairly. Consideration of these values will underpin the selection process for each school award.
*Each school in Spennymoor Parish will be asked to choose a pupil for an Award.
Extra Special Achievement and Recognition Award
The Spennymoor ‘With Hope No One Shall Fail’ Extra Special Achievement and Recognition Award
Do you know a young person or young people who have gone further than most to accomplish their dreams – helped others and not themselves, accomplished something in amazing circumstances, turning lives around?
Do you know a young person or young people who have overcome personal barriers, shown an act of bravery, or shown courage and determination in the face of adversity? Perhaps they are a young parent(s), caring for their child whilst continuing to shape their own lives through study or training. Perhaps they are coping with bereavement, or disability, in a way that is inspiring or encouraging to those around them, sharing with others and giving of themselves with love and compassion.
