IF you know a child or youngster who is making a difference, now is the time to put their name down for an award.

Nominations have been pouring in for this year's High 5 Awards, but the deadline is now just hours away.

Awards ambassador and Swans star Leon Britton (left) has thanked all those who have nominated so far and urged those yet to submit a nomination to do so by the deadline tomorrow.

Children and young people who have made a difference in their communities, shown enterprise in business or fundraising, or achieved against the odds are being nominated for the prestigious awards, supported by the soccer star. Midfielder Leon said: "I'm delighted to be the ambassador for the High 5 Awards and I am grateful for everyone's help in Swansea to make this year's awards a massive success.


"Thanks to everyone for the nominations so far. If you have not nominated please do so before July 24. The High 5 Awards reward children and young people who are making a difference to their own lives or their communities."

The High 5 Awards are open to any young person or group aged 19 or under and either a resident or educated in Swansea.

They are run by Swansea Council and sponsored by Gower College Swansea and supported by Swansea City Football Club, the Rotary Club of Swansea and The Wave.

Each winner will receive a £50 cash prize (groups receive £100), a personal activity/opportunity and other prizes.

They will be invited to the celebration awards evening along with their nominator and two guests.

Swansea's Lord Mayor is sponsoring the group category.

There is also the Chiquito's Achiever Award, Swansea Building Society Community Award, the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales Entrepreneur and Enterprise Award and the Environment category.
