JDC Sponsor 'Child of the Year' at Pride of Jersey Awards 2019

We are delighted to sponsor the ‘Child of the Year’ award for the fourth consecutive year at the forthcoming Jersey Evening Post (JEP) Pride of Jersey Awards 2019.

These awards give us an opportunity to celebrate remarkable individuals who have gone beyond all expectations and have helped to enhance the lives of others around them.

The JEP will be asking their readers over the next few months to nominate those people that they feel are most worthy of being considered for one of the 12 awards.

As we are investing for future generations, our purpose is to ensure we are supporting economic stability and growth for the benefit of all islanders and in particular our children’s future and prosperity, ensuring they can live in a happy, stable environment. Also, we were particularly inspired last year with so many nominees who have accomplished incredible work and are often not recognised or appreciated for their achievements. This is why we are delighted to continue our involvement with the Pride of Jersey Awards.

This year, we hope more nominees will apply from various age groups up to the age of 16. Someone who has gone beyond all expectations and proved themselves to be exceptional. This years’ potential ‘child of the year’ may have helped to improve the lives of those around them, perhaps raised money for a good cause or done something extraordinary to help others. Or, the individual may have demonstrated resilience to leadership at school, a club or perhaps has excelled at sport, the arts or has contributed to protecting the environment. Someone who has a positive approach to life, as aspiring and well-balanced person with a selfless attitude, or an individual who has over come adversity.

Nominations can be made by filling out one of the forms which will be regularly printed in the JEP or by visiting
