THE search is on to find the Journal’s Child of the Year 2018.

This is your chance to nominate someone deserving of the accolade to win a fun-filled day out.

Do you know a special little someone who deserves some recognition?

Have them treated like a VIP for the day and pick up a load of goodies from a selection of the Journal’s generous advertisers, including gifts, vouchers and special discounts.

Many children show remarkable bravery in battling illness; others devote their time to helping family, friends and neighbours or their community.

They may have kept a cool head in a crisis or offered support or comfort to someone in need; or given that little extra at school or their sports club. What better way to have their achievements recognised than in their local newspaper?

Last year’s winner was Bethany Dicken, a pupil at Ysgol Bryn Hedydd in Rhyl.

The then seven year old earned the award for her brave efforts caring for her mother Wendy Jones during an epileptic fit.

Bethany, who also suffers from epilepsy, used her initiative and called the ambulance service, using a land line to make sure they would be able to trace the call – and possibly saved her mum’s life.

We are now taking nominations for 2018’s Child of the Year. Email, giving your contact details and some information about why you think the child you have nominated is deserving of the award.

Entries must be in by Friday, February 16.
