Nominations Open for Garda Youth Awards 2021

The Roscommon-Longford Garda Division, in association with Roscommon and Longford County Councils, is delighted to hold the third annual Roscommon-Longford Garda Youth Awards.

The awards celebrate outstanding young people between the ages of 13 and 21 years.  Roscommon-Longford Gardaí, along with Roscommon and Longford County Councils, recognise that a lot of good work is being done by young people in every community throughout both counties which should be rewarded.

Awards will be considered for nominated young people who by their presence, make their communities a better place to live.  There will be four winners of the Roscommon-Longford Garda Youth Awards for 2021:

  • Individual – where a young person has made a positive contribution to their community making it a better place to live
  • 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/innovation, have made their community a safer place to live in

Relevant persons/organisations/groups in the Roscommon Longford Garda Division are encouraged to put forward young people who demonstrate these qualities for nomination.

A judging panel will decide upon a nominee in each category and their nomination form will then be forwarded to represent the Roscommon-Longford Garda Division for consideration for the National Garda Youth Awards in October 2021.  It is hoped that the Roscommon-Longford Garda Youth Awards will be presented at a virtual ceremony before the end of May.
