CHILDREN and young people from council estates across Kirklees can take part in a new awards scheme.
They have been invited to put forward ideas to help others - and improve their local environment - in a scheme launched in memory of tenant campaigner Kevin Jordan.
There will be two Kevin Jordan Awards of £1,000 each - one for helping others and one for improving the environment.
The money will be spend on carrying out the good work.
The winning ideas need to have a lasting benefit for local people, for example arranging regular litter picks or organising regular outings for older people.
The awards are jointly sponsored by Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing and Kirklees Federation of Tenant and Resident Associations.
Mr Jordan, who died last August, lived on the Fieldhead Estate in Birstall.
He was a former vice-chairman of the federation and a member of the Batley Housing Management Committee.
Cliff Whiteley, the chairman of the federation and KNH, said: "Many people who never knew Kevin have benefited from his voluntary work for the community of Kirklees.
"These awards are a fitting tribute to a remarkable man."
For details of the awards phone Philip Hardstone at Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing on 01484 221223. The closing date for applications is Friday, May 28.
