North American Manx awards

High-achieving young people in the Isle of Man are being invited to compete for this year's North American Manx awards.

There are five categories - Manx Music, Manx Art and Crafts, Manx Language and making an Outstanding Contribution to Manx Culture. And there's a special award for someone who's made an outstanding contribution while overcoming a disability.

The awards were set up in 1979 by the North American Manx Association when they met in Ohio to commemorate the millennium of Tynwald.

Winners receive a special silver medal and the awards are for youngsters under the age of 18.

Nominations should reach the Department of Education by Friday 9 May.
