Hotline set up for High 5 nominations

High 5 Awards' organisers are making sure nothing gets in the way of a worthy child or young person being nominated for the annual honours this year.

High 5 2017 Stacey

As well as the usual online nominations form, there is now a phone line where you can make a nomination too.


Anyone who wishes to nominate an individual, group or class can now head to or leave a message at 01792 635699 to make an application over the phone.


Stacey Norman from Stenor, which is one of the sponsors of the awards, is urging people to pick up the phone if they prefer to nominate that way to give young people they know a special High 5 thanks for what they are achieving.


She said: "Stenor is proud to support the High 5 Awards once again this year. Hopefully the phone line will allow even more people to nominate, including young people who may want to nominate their classmates.


"You hear of some incredible stories through the awards of young people who have done incredible things that may not get recognised usually for their achievement.


"These awards show young people are doing good things in the community. They encourage young people to work hard to achieve their dreams."


The High 5 Awards are open to any child or young person or group in three age ranges - under 13s, aged 19 or under or 20 to 25-year-olds resident in Swansea, educated or receiving support here.


School pupils can still be entered as individuals, clubs or groups in these main categories, but for 2017 nominations for a whole school class/year educated in the city will be welcomed too.


Judges are looking for examples of individuals or groups who aspire to reach personal goals or improve the lives of others in their family, school or community and in doing so are an inspiration to others.


Nominators should remember to include in their entries any challenges nominees have overcome along the way and why they are an inspiration to others.


Everyone nominated will be recognised with a certificate. The winners' final prizes will be uniquely designed around the nominee.


The High 5 Awards are organised by Swansea Council, sponsored by Gower College Swansea, and supported by Swansea City FC, the Rotary Club of Swansea, Swansea Building Society, Swansea Lord Mayor's Office, Stenor, Day's Rental, Swansea Council's recycling team, The LC Swansea, McDonalds, Go Air Trampoline Park Swansea, and Gower Activity Centres as part of Swansea Young People's Services.
