MARK ADDS: "Lewis is a member of the Selby District Scout Network and an inspirational Cub Scout Leader with 14th Selby (Thorpe Willoughby) Scout Group. He brings to this role a great determination to invigorate the Scout Network in Districts and across the County, working closely with the County and District Youth Commissioners.
The County has some 373 leaders in the Scout Network age range (18-25) and their contribution is invaluable to how we develop our programmes, leadership, activities and events. Having appointed Lewis to this important role, I am confident that we can begin to develop positively our Scout Networks and their contribution to supporting our young members across the wide spectrum of Scouting activities.
I am sure that you will give Lewis your full support.."
The Young Rangers winner and runner-up will receive prizes of £750 and £250 respectively to put towards travel to a national park of their choice, on the proviso that they share their insight and findings with the Trustees following their visit.
If you know an inspiring young person who has made a real difference to our National Park please nominate them on the form HERE
"As one of thousands of Scouts volunteers across the UK, I’m inspired every week by the actions and the potential of our young people. We want to recognise 20 of those incredible shining lights who show our values week in, week out.
As Scouts, it’s in our nature to do our best and to help other people. So we’re looking for young people in our movement who’ve gone above and beyond in demonstrating Scout values (cooperation, integrity, care, respect and belief), kindness and resilience, and/or who’ve supported their group or local community.
The 20 Unsung Heroes will each receive a £500 prize, which has been personally gifted by our Chief Scout, Bear Grylls.
If you can think of a deserving young person who’s really living our values and making a special contribution, then we’d love for you to nominate them. These FAQs should answer any questions you have before nominating.
You need to be an Association Member to nominate a young person and nominations are open until 20th January 2020
We’d also appreciate you sharing this far and wide, so that we can give every deserving young person the chance to be recognised.
We’re expecting a lot of nominations and it goes without saying that, while we can’t recognise everyone, we’re so proud for the things our young people are doing across the UK.
Thank you for all you do for Scouts."
