Variety, the Children’s Charity of Jersey are on the look out for shining stars in the Island. These annual awards celebrate the courage, creativity, and commitment of children and young people in Jersey. The six categories for which Variety look to find a ‘Star’ are...

Courage Community Carer Sport Arts Academic

Aimed at youngsters aged between six and sixteen, the event is sponsored by The Channel Islands Co-Operative Society.

The public are invited to nominate the young people that they think should be recognised and rewarded. Many young islanders face adversity in their lives; this could be dealing with a debilitating illness, or helping to care for a family member. Others gladly give up their time to help others in the community and Variety is also looking for those who have excelled in an academic or creative forum.

Nomination forms are available to download below or in hard copy format from all Co-operative food stores, through Island schools, youth clubs and parish halls. Prizes on offer for the winners include a fabulous top prize of an incredible £5,000 worth of travel vouchers from The Channel Islands Cooperative Society Limited, along with £500 worth of vouchers for each of the six category winners.

All the nominated youngsters are shortlisted and those final eighteen are judged by an independent panel. All the shortlisted youngsters and their families are invited to a gala awards ceremony which takes place on the 9th June 2019. The highlight of the themed event is undoubtedly the awards presentation but all attendees also enjoy afternoon tea and a memorable array of entertainment. Variety are privileged to have His Excellency Air Chief Marshal Stephen and Mrs Dalton to present the top award.
