Young people to be honoured by North American Manx Association

Young people who've made an outstanding contribution to Manx culture and Island life in the last year are to be recognised this summer.

The North American Manx Awards cover a range of subjects including Manx language, music and art and are largely focussed on children under the age of 18.

The awards have been run each year since 1978, when the convention of the North American Manx Association assembled at Rocky River in Ohio.

Education, Sport & Culture Minister, Dr Alex Allinson MHK, says: "It has been a tough year for everyone and these awards are a great way to recognise the endeavours and achievements of our young people and their contribution to Island life and Manx culture."

Nominations for the awards are now being welcomed - application forms can be collected by e-mailing cpd.bookings@sch.im or calling Frances Cowin or Shelley Moffitt on 693 830/6.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 7 - the winners will receive a specially minted medal at the Tynwald building on Friday, July 9.
