Young Ringer Award

In an effort to recognize and encourage young ringers, the guild executive committee is please to introduce the Jeff Smith Memorial Young Ringer Award.

To qualify for the award, the ringer will satisfy the following requirements:

a) A current member of the North American Guild of Change Ringers

b) 22 years old or younger

c) At least one quarter peal or peal rung within the last year

d) Nomination, which includes a statement from a local ringing master that the student has contributed to the health of the local ringing community

We hope to encourage more young people to try ringing and develop their skill. We also hope ringing groups will use the award to generate publicity.

We plan to announce the first winners at the Boston AGM next month.
