The Sunday Telegraph is proud to have launched the Spirit of the Community Awards, to honour young people aged between 10 and 18 and reward the best of them for their community service.
The awards are being sponsored by the Reuben Brothers Foundation and supported by groups including the Scouts, Girlguiding UK and The Prince’s Trust.
Those wishing to enter need to have undertaken unpaid voluntary work in the United Kingdom or abroad sometime between June 1, 2005 and May 30, 2006 and to be nominated by someone such as a teacher or a Scout leader. The entry form will be in the Sunday Telegraph each week until the closing date of May 31, 2006.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London in October. The winner will receive Â£5,000 and the runner-up Â£2,500. Ten others will win Â£500. Half the money will go to the winner and half to a charity of his or her choice.
