Wigan Soroptimists Seek a Girl or Young Woman to be Their Young Achiever 2020


Over the years the award has given us the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of an impressive group of young women.  Last year the award went to CaitlinTouhey.  A multi-talented young woman, her successes  in academia, business, and  sport plus her service to the community meant she could have been the winner many times over!

We have always taken a broad view of achievement to encompass service to the community, acts of bravery, overcoming life’s difficulties,  young carer, business  skills, or outstanding performance at school/college, or in sport,  entertainment .etc.

Anyone can make a nomination. The age range for nominees is 14–21 years and they must come from the catchment area of our Club, which is essentially the Wigan Borough excluding the Leigh, Tyldesley  and Atherton districts. The nomination form can be obtained on request from [email protected] or from any member of SI Wigan and it will be available on our Club’s website   http://sigbi.org/wigan.

Forms, when completed and signed, should be returned by post to: Young Achiever Award,  10 Edinburgh Drive, Wigan, WN5 9ET or sent to [email protected]

The deadline for applications is 30th October 2020

The winner will have her name engraved on a trophy.  She will receive an engraved miniature trophy together with a gift card valued at £100.00.  The award is planned to be presented by the Mayor of Wigan in the Mayor’s Parlour in early December 2020
