Do you know of an inspiring individual or group of young people whose passion for adventure deserves recognition?
The University of Derby is once again looking for the best runners, bikers, climbers, cavers, skiers, skateboarders, free-runners, kayakers and sailors in the country. Here, Lauren Blount tells us all about the UK Young Adventurers Awards 2015:
We are excited to announce that our UK Young Adventurers Awards are back again this year. We're searching for an inspiring individual or group of young people whose passion for adventure deserves recognition.
There are four categories in which to nominate:
- Junior Adventurer of the Year (aged 7-11)
- Adventurer of the Year (aged 12-17)
- Team of the Year
- Derbyshire Adventurer of the Year
All our nominees will be judged and shortlisted by our panel of expert judges, who all share experience in multiple outdoor industries on national and multi-national levels. All our finalists will be invited to our awards ceremony at Oaklands Manor Outdoor Leadership Centre on Saturday 10 October, when we will present our winners with their awards and prizes, and hear from our guest speaker and pro climber Shauna Coxsey.
Visit our website to nominate a young adventurer. You will also find further information on the awards, along with our terms and conditions. All entries must be received by Friday 31 July 2015.
Thank you for helping us find the UK's young adventurers!
