PUBLISHED: 16:37 12 May 2018 | UPDATED: 16:37 12 May 2018
Nominations are being sought for this year's Havering Talented 30 scheme as the deadline draws nearer this month.
Every year, Havering Talented 30 aims to recognise the skills, inspiration and hard work of gifted young people in the last year across the full range of cultural activities (including creative and performing arts, sport, music, drama, dance and literature).
Through the award of a grant, the scheme helps to support our young people to continue to enhance their skills and performance.
Talented 30 was established in 2008 in the run up to the London Olympic games. It now continues as an Olympic legacy programme.
Applicants must be aged 19 or under, in full time education and live in Havering.
Individuals can apply for the award themselves or they can be nominated by someone who is aware of their abilities, such as a parent, teacher or coach.
Successful candidates will be notified at the start of June and receive their award at a special ceremony at myplace, Harold Hill on Monday, July 9.
Apart from continuing to work towards improvement in their chosen activity, award winners will be required to attend the awards evening to receive the £200 grant in person, agree to allow Havering Council to use the information provided and photographs taken at the event to publicise their achievement and provide evidence of how the award has been used.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from havering.gov.uk/talented30 and emailed to email@example.com and the deadline for entries in May 21.
