Nominations for North American Manx Awards open

Talented young people who give their time to the community will be honoured in July.

Nominations are being sought for the annual North American Manx Awards.

The awards recognise, mainly, the achievements of under-18s in a number of categories including Manx music, arts and crafts, Manx language, contribution to Manx culture and community.

Education, Sport and Culture Minister Graham Cregeen says: "These awards were generously instigated by the North American Manx Association to commemorate the millennium of Tynwald in 1979 and have become a traditional high point in the education calendar.

"They reward young people with talent and who give time to the community, including those who overcome considerable challenges to do so."

The awards will be presented at the Barrool Suite in the Tynwald building on Friday 6 July.
