Group – where two or more made a positive contribution to their community making it a better place to live

Special Achievement – where a young person has overcome difficult circumstances, defied all the odds and whose commitment deserves recognition

Community Safety – where a young person or persons, through a crime prevention or safety initiative or innovation, have made their community a safer place to live

Gardaí will be distributing nomination forms to schools, youth groups and voluntary organisations across County Longford and County Roscommon via email in the coming weeks.
