Time to vote for the winner of Kids Are Alright Challenge 2011

NEXT Monday a group of inspirational young people from across Fenland will converge on Wisbech for the final of the Kids Are Alright Challenge 2011.

Nominations have been flooding in for the award-winning campaign since January and now is the time for you to choose your winner.

Five monthly champions have already been picked by the judges – but all 18 of this year’s nominations will be vying for the public vote in the hope of claiming the overall prize.

The winner is set to be crowned at the grand final at the Boathouse in Wisbech on July 4. It promises to be a celebration of the positive contributions the youngsters of Fenland make in their communities.

The lavish ceremony will feature another performance by energetic entertainers Dance Offensive as well as special presentations for the nominees in front of a host of dignitaries.

Names of the Kids Are Alright winners will be emblazoned across the Boathouse thanks to the stickers and signs of Bluechip Brand Solutions Ltd.

The Kids Are Alright campaign – which has now spread across the country – has rewarded dozens of young people and youth groups in Fenland in its two-year history.
