Cllr Achievement Awards: Young Councillor of the Year

With the average age of councillors currently standing at 59, young people can face a particularly difficult task in overcoming barriers to becoming elected, such as conflicting time commitments from work, studies, or having a young family, as well as money pressures. This award will recognise a councillor who was 30 or under when last elected and who has contributed significantly to their community during their time in office.

The councillor who wins this category will:

  • be a councillor who was 30 or under when last elected;
  • demonstrate a commitment to working for the community using council structures;
  • have contributed to or delivered a key council project which benefits residents.

Successful submissions should:

  • provide clear examples of work or projects they have carried out;
  • focus on how they have gone above and beyond their statutory role.
