Following the success of the Newhaven Young People of the Year Awards held in 2010 and 2011 the scheme has been extended to include awards for people of all ages for 2012

And for people of all ages:

- Volunteer (someone who has done outstanding voluntary work in the community)

- Achiever (someone who has achieved something outstanding through hard work and/or talent - this could include sporting achievements)

- Unsung Hero (a wide category to cover for instance someone who has helped the town or community in some way, whether in a professional or voluntary role and going above and beyond the call of duty)

Each individual winner will receive a cash prize of £100 and a commemorative trophy which will be engraved with their name.

Anyone who lives, works/volunteers or goes to school in Newhaven is eligible to be nominated. For the young people's awards they must be aged 17yrs or under on 2nd May 2012.
