About Stephen

Stephen died suddenly aged 25. Despite losing his sight and having a kidney transplant he was studying to become a paralegal and was involved in his local community. He planned to stand for Council in 2015 and felt everyone should use their vote and get involved.


1988-2014

About the Award

Following his example of youth engagement, we are asking young people 16-18 to come up with an idea that will add to their area and present it however they choose (max 250 words).

A panel, including Stephen’s father, the leader of the Herefordshire Council, an Officer of the Council and a Community representative will choose a shortlist of entries which will then be put to a student vote to decide the winner! Details of how to vote will be announced when the finalists have been chosen.
