YOUNGSTERS from across Hampshire could win an award for being good citizens.

The Hampshire Making a Difference Award will be presented to the young person or group of young people, aged between five and 18, who have done something exceptional to help others.

It could be anything from helping a sick relative, neighbour or friend over a period of time, or supporting a local charity or long-term project, to helping people in the community, or showing an act of bravery.

The deadline is February 15. Applications can be submitted at or forms can be collected from museums and libraries. A panel of judges will decide on the successful nominees.
