With the MFON Megastars Awards, My Family, Our Needs are celebrating young people with additional needs and those who support them.
There are six categories to choose from. So if you know a young person with a disability who is making the world a better place, someone in a mentor role providing support for young people with additional needs or simply, a supportive sibling who deserves a bit of recognition – nominate them for an award.
Nominations are now open. Read on to find out more about the categories and simply click the category title to make your nomination.
The winner of this award has conquered challenges and obstacles. Despite their setbacks, the winner will have continued through hardship whilst showing immense bravery and strength.
The winner of this category will be going above and beyond for their sibling. Finalists may not necessarily have a disability themselves, but could be supporting a brother or sister who does.
This award is for an individual or group who uses creative arts as a form of therapy or to express themselves. Whether they are artists, musicians, dancers or photographers, this is an award to recognise them.
This award is for someone who is a constant source of support, encouragement and advice for young disabled people. This could be a teacher, a SENCO, a dance coach – just anyone who is always on their side.
This award is for a young person who is making a difference to the lives of people with additional needs whether this is through an active campaign or through a smaller gesture. The winner of this award will be making the world a better place whilst also living with their own disability.
The winner of this award will have raised funds for either a child in need or for a supporting charity. Regardless of the amount raised, this award will recognise passion, creativity and dedication to their campaign. They may have a disability themselves or be committed to raising awareness of those who do.
