The Roscommon-Longford Garda Division, in association with Roscommon and Longford County Councils, is delighted to hold the fourth annual Roscommon-Longford Garda Youth Awards.
These annual awards celebrate outstanding young people between the ages of 13 and 21 years in our communities. An Garda Síochána, Roscommon-Longford, in conjunction with Roscommon and Longford County Councils, recognise that a lot of good work is being done by young people in every community throughout counties Roscommon and Longford.
Awards will be considered for nominated young people who by their presence, make their communities a better place to live. There will be four winners of the Roscommon-Longford Garda Youth Awards for 2022:

Group – where two or more made a positive contribution to their community making it a better place to live.
Special Achievement – where a young person has overcome difficult circumstances, defied all the odds and whose commitment deserves recognition.
