Previous Kids Count Inspiration Awards winners have been nominated by the current Prime Minister David Cameron, Tessa Jowell, Andy Burnham, James Brokenshire and Greg Clark. Mr Stephenson is hoping this year, the winner will be someone from Pendle!

The Awards have previously recognised some of the most inspirational young people in the country, such as the late Stephen Sutton MBE who raised over £5 million for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

For nearly a decade, the Kids Count Inspiration Awards Ceremony has been hosted on the Terrace at the House of Commons. This important event provides the winners with an opportunity to meet those who present their awards, such as the Ministers, MPs and celebrities. It also allows winners to visit London and the impressive House of Commons.

Mr Stephenson added: “We have inspirational young people from Pendle. I know there are some who are yet to be recognised. If you know of a young person who is inspirational, nominate them for the Kids Count Inspiration Awards.”

Nominations for the 2015 Kids Count Inspiration Awards are now open and the deadline for nominations is September 9th, 2015. To nominate visit: http://tinyurl.com/p5dwetb
