Would you like to win £1700 to help your local community?
The Lions Club of Ipswich is looking for a Young Ambassador to represent Ipswich in a nationwide competition recognising service to the community.
This is a wonderful opportunity for young people to demonstrate their commitment to community service projects and to have their achievements recognised. It will also give candidates experience of presenting their ideas to a wider audience. Lions could also help you with further fundraising.
You will already be involved in serving your community and will be over 15 but under 19 years of age on 30 June 2017. Voluntary service can be given as a member of an organisation (St John, Cadets, a Charity or Volunteers etc) or as an individual directly helping people.
The representative chosen for Ipswich will receive a bursary of £200 to spend on his or her nominated community service project. The Ipswich Young Ambassador will go forward to a regional final for East Anglia, to be held in December 2017.
The winner selected at the regional final will receive a bursary of £500 to spend on his or her nominated community service project. He or she will also go forward to the national final, which will be held during a residential weekend in February 2018. The national winner will receive a further £1000 bursary and will become Young Ambassador for Great Britain at Lions Clubs International European Award Final.
In 2015 our Ipswich representative was Jennifer Luu, a sixth form pupil at Copleston School. Jennifer was also selected as the winner for East Anglia and attended the national finals weekend where she met the winners from the other regions. Together they enjoyed a weekend of fun and friendship.
