 YOUNG AMBASSADOR AWARDRebecca at convention

The primary aim of this Annual Competition is to recognise and reward the effort that many young people put into our local community..  Despite the prominance given by the media to the troublemakers in society, the vast majority of our young people are good, honest, hardworking young citizens who give up a lot of their free time to help others less fortunate than themselves, or perhaps spend time in furthering the aims of various Youth Organisations, e.g. Scouts, Guides, Cadets, St.John Ambulance, etc.


The scheme is open to Young People aged 15 to 18 years and competitions are arranged at local, National and European levels which, in addition to the recognition of their efforts, provides the opportunity to win Bursaries to further their chosen project. 

 Rebecca Bellworthy, sponsored by Eastleigh Lions Club, was the winner of  2010 District Young Ambassadors Award.
