NAMA - make your nomination

Youngsters in the Island who've shown a real interest in Manx culture are being encouraged to take part in this year's North American Manx Awards.

Achievements are saluted in areas such as Manx music, arts and craft and Manx language, in a unique honour supported by the North American Manx Association.

There are student and adult categories for making an Outstanding Contribution to Manx Culture and an award for someone who's done that, while overcoming a disablity.

A special silver medal is minted each year for the winners.

Nominations close in just over a week's time, June 7.

Past President of the Association, Lawrence Skelly, says it's a great scheme for young people:

Nominations should be sent to the Department for Education and Children at St George's Court in Douglas.
