Imogen Year 9 Youth Justice Citizenship competition winnerImogen (Year 9) has won the Harrison Photography prize in the Youth Justice Agency’s 2014 Citizenship Competition.

Imogen entered the competition through Ballyholme Parish Youth Club with a photograph depicting her involvement in active citizenship. On presenting the prizes the Justice Minister said:

“Many young people make a positive contribution within their communities but seldom get the credit they deserve…As fine ambassadors for their peer group, it is clear that the winners of these prizes have demonstrated both exceptional artistic talent and impressive insights into what being a good citizen actually means.  We can learn a lot from them.”

Imogen is pictured after receiving her prize with fellow winner, Ellen; local actor/ playwright, Dan Gordon; Mandy Harrison from Harrison Photography and Justice Minister David Ford at a ceremony in Parliament Buildings in April.
