Search for Young First Aiders of the Year

Young lifesavers with awards

St John Ambulance is seeking nominations for young people who have used first aid to save a life or help an injured person for its annual Young First Aider of the Year awards.

Bravery rewarded

Open to anyone under the age of 18, the award recognises young people who have acted quickly, calmly and effectively in a real emergency.

The closing date is 18 February and winners will be invited to a special ceremony in London in May.

Life saving actions

Last year's 10 medal winners included a 13-year old girl who gave vital first aid to a 20 month old baby who was choking and a 16-year old boy who cared for a child who had suffered head injuries in a traffic accident.

Recognition

Sandra Stocker, spokesperson for the St John Ambulance Awards Committee, said it is essential young people learn first aid so they can help anyone who has been injured.

'The Young First Aider of the Year awards is a wonderful way to celebrate their bravery and quick-thinking.'
