Nominations are still open for the next generation of grassroots football heroes in Essex.
The county’s FA is welcoming information on 14 to 21 year olds for the Young Volunteer award of the Celebrate Essex competition on Twitter.
Armed with smartphones (and using the #CelebrateEssex and #iwill hashtags on Twitter), young Essex volunteers can create a film – short or long – talking about the positive impact they have had on their grassroots football communities.
Make Your Nomination on Twitter
If you know a Young Volunteer who you think should receive some special thanks, anyone can make a nomination by tweeting (by 13th November):
“I nominate [Insert Name/Handle] as @EssexCountyFA #CelebrateEssex Young Volunteer because…”
State why your nominee should be the winner and be as descriptive as you can in 280 characters! It’s important to use the #CelebrateEssex hashtag to ensure your entry is registered.
Once the window closes, all the nominations received will be collated and a panel will decide which individuals will be progressed to the Twitter poll/vote…
Let Voting Commence!
A Twitter poll/vote will be available at @EssexCountyFA for seven days, featuring profiles of the nominees so voters can make an informed decision on who to vote for.
And Our Winner Is…
The winner of the poll will be contacted to be that month’s ‘Volunteer of the Month’, who’ll receive a prize plus promotional activities to celebrate their work.
