County Federations, clubs and YFC members are being encouraged to enter the Rural Youth Europe (RYE) Project competition to gain recognition on a European scale for projects, individuals or enterprises.

A Rural Youth Project is a project where young people have worked together towards a common goal on a voluntary basis.  The year 2020 was very different because of the COVID 19 pandemic and RYE wants to recognise and celebrate the resilience, creativity and innovation of rural youth through these awards.

This competition can gain your project visibility on a European level – there are three categories:-

Rural Youth Project of the Year

A project on which an individual or group of young people have worked together for the benefit of themselves, their local community or the greater good.

Inspirational Rural Youth Person or Club of the Year

Rural Youth Enterprise of the Year

A young person or group of young people who have used their skills to set up or further their own business to make an income or raise funds for charity.

There are also two age categories for each category.

  • Senior category – projects that have been run by youth 18 years and older.
  • Junior category – at least half of the team members are 18 years or younger.

If there are less than three entries received for each category RYE retain the right to combine the Junior and Senior categories and have one overall category
