Nominations close for the 2017 High 5 awards on Friday (July 21st)

The final whistle will blow for nominations for the 2017 High 5 Awards this Friday, July 21st.

High 5 Awards 2017

Swans star Leon Britton has put out a final plea for nominations for the city's premier awards for inspirational children and young people.

The footballer, who is the ambassador for the High 5 awards 2017, today thanked everyone who has nominated so far including schools, mums, council staff and other individuals.

But he called for anyone who has not yet nominated to get on line or on the phone to make sure youngsters, groups, or school classes, doing great things in the city are nominated too.

Leon said: "The entries so far have been amazing but I don't want any youngsters to miss out if they are worthy of nomination too. I hope everyone will take some time this week before the deadline to recommend someone they know for these special honours.

"Every child nominated will get a certificate to help show them their efforts are appreciated and that they should be proud of being an inspiration to others to overcome and succeed.

"Those entries that particularly impress the judges will go on to receive a special prize and attend a special ceremony. Nominations can be for individuals, groups or whole school classes.

"It's easy to nominate online at or leave a message at 01792 635699 to make an application over the phone or get assistance."

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 20-25 year olds resident in Swansea, educated, or receiving support here.

All you need to do is let judges know why you think the person, group or class is an inspiration and deserves a High 5 Award.

Nominations should include how they have improved, what they have achieved, any challenges they have overcome and how that's changed their life or benefited their family, community or school.

The High 5 Awards are organised by Swansea Council, sponsored by Gower College Swansea, and supported by Swansea City FC, Rotary Club of Swansea, Swansea Building Society, Swansea Lord Mayor's Office, Stenor, Day's Rental, Swansea Council Recycling Team, The LC Swansea, McDonalds, Go Air Trampoline Park - Swansea, Gower Activity Centres as part of Swansea Young Peoples Services and CPR which produces Watchu.
