Welcome to the MK Mayor's Award!

Thank you for applying for the Mayor's Award. This is the first year that MK Council have run this opportunity for young people to be recognised for their work in supporting democracy and citizenship, in this way.

There are some rules to be aware of and to follow:

• Applications can be about any child or young person who lives in MK. Those applying should be within school age (primary from the age of 5 or secondary educational establishments up to the age of 18 or up to the age of 20 at a special school).

• Parents/carers are not able to enter their children.

• Applications must show how democracy or citizenship was relevant to the work. It could have been part of a bigger project/task/event/activity (e.g. a questionnaire that sparked the idea of a disco) or a talk and a vote on what should happen at the youth club.

• Those nominated could be a group or an individual.

• A good application will also show how the activity was delivered and what outcomes it had for the people involved. So please try to include all of the important elements.

• Nominators can put in more than one application for the period from 1st April 2019 to 30th March 2020.

• Applications will be judged against each other but the Mayor of Milton Keynes.
