Helping Hawick to recognise contributions of its young people

Young Teris’ achievements will be recognised on April 27 at Hawick Town Hall.

The first Top Teri awards presentation will be a glittering event, open to people aged 11-25, to recognise young people’s achievement in the community and an opportunity to showcase the positive impact they have.

The awards will acknowledge the many young people who give something back, go out of their way to help others, have strived in their chosen field, have overcome a difficulty in their life or who just did that special something that went unrecognised.

Nominations are open: fill out the simple nomination form at Copies are also available from Think Fitness, Hawick High School, Burnfoot Community Centre and Hawick Library, and can be posted in the ballot boxes at the four venues by March 9.

With 10 categories, the judging panel of young people will select three finalists for each award, who will be invited to the event along with two guests. The evening will include performances from Hawick Pipe Band, Shields Dance Group, Creative Fashion students and local bands.

Tickets, £10, which include a buffet, can be bought from March 30 at Think Fitness. A discount is available for table bookings of 10.

The awards are funded by the Scottish Community Foundation and Scottish Borders Council.
