Action In The Community will be holding the Pride Of Brent Awards Ceremony in March

A community organisation is hosting its first ever awards event to recognise the outstanding achievements of youths in the borough.

The Pride Of Brent Awards Ceremony by Action In The Community (AITC) will take place in March but nominations are needed.

AITC is urging friends, families and teachers to put forward a young person between the ages of 12-18 for an award.

The six categories are; highest GCSE grades, most improved student, positive contribution, creative arts, sporting achievement and most innovative young person.

David Mullings, AITC founder, said: “For too long we have rewarded those children who have been underachieving for small positive shifts in their behaviour and forgotten to acknowledge those who have consistently been achieving.

“We feel it necessary to highlight and reward these youth for their positive contributions. In doing so we believe that this will raise the aspirations of those who are not fulfilling their potential.
