Call for nominations for the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire Awards 2019

Awards for groups involved in youth projects, social justice and/or youth crime prevention

The annual High Sheriff Awards provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate some of the fantastic individuals and voluntary organisations who are helping to make our county better.

This year, in addition to the traditional social justice and crime prevention themes, the awards will also reflect the current High Sheriff’s interest in promoting youth projects.
Throughout her year as High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Suzy Harvey is focusing on honouring organisations that support and encourage young people to be the best that they can be. She is particularly interested to hear from those groups or projects where young people are involved in delivering the work, or are the main beneficiaries.

The High Sheriff invites all Hertfordshire community and voluntary groups working in the following theme areas to apply for a High Sheriff Award:

· Youth projects
· Social Justice
· Youth related crime prevention

The deadline for receiving nominations is 5pm on Friday 16th November after which they are being considered by the High Sheriff’s panel. Winners will be announced at the High Sheriff Awards evening on 14th March 2019

Completed application forms can be emailed to or posted to Foundation House, 2-4 Forum Place, Fiddlebridge Lane, Hatfield, Herts, AL10 0RN
