Young Citizen Awards

Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland (RIBI) celebrates the achievements of young people with the annual RIBI Young Citizen Awards.

Launched in 2007 in association with the BBC News Channel, the awards recognise young people under the age of 25, who have demonstrated their commitment to citizenship through various activities. The awards can be for individuals or groups, for projects that showcase and celebrate the positive citizenship and important responsibilities assumed by many young people in Great Britain and Ireland.

RIBI Young Citizen Awards winners receive trophies and a prize of £500 at the RIBI Annual Conference, where the awards are presented live on the BBC News Channel. 

Those nominated do not necessarily have to be working on a Rotary project to be eligible for an award. What matters is that they, individually or as part of a group, have made a positive difference which has been recognised by a local Rotary club as worthy of a nomination.

Every nomination receives a personalised certificate from RIBI via their local Rotary club recognising the achievement.
