The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme aims to enable schools, colleges and youth organisations to recognise, reward and celebrate the achievements of their young people.
Sir Jack Petchey CBE wants young people to raise their aspirations, believe in themselves and make a contribution to their society. Nominees need to be aged between 11-25.
Who can be nominated?
It is not about the fastest, the smartest or being the best. The award is designed to recognise outstanding individual achievements. These achievements can include:
- Helping others over and above expectations
- Being a good role model/mentor
- Showing bravery
- Overcoming a personal challenge
- Trying really hard
- Breaking through a personal barrier
What does each award winner receive?
When a winner is selected they will need to be publicly congratulated for their achievement in front of their peers at an assembly, club event or youth group session. They will be given:
- A framed certificate and pin badge.
- A letter from Jack with an opportunity to keep in touch and join our JPF Achievers community.
- A copy of ‘Notes from Sir Jack Petchey CBE’ – a special booklet with Sir Jack’s own advice and guidance for young achievers.
- £300 to be spent on something of their choice that will benefit their school or youth organisation (for example equipment, a day out for the team, a specialist to come in and train the young people).
