Junior & Senior Member of the Year 2022

Junior Member of the Year

The judges for this competition were Mrs Annwen Williams and Miss Elen Williams.

Message from the judges:

Although only three members competed, any three of them could have been given the title of Carmarthenshire YFC Junior member of the year 2022. All three were passionate about the organization and very enthusiastic members of their clubs. Congratulations and a thank you to all three for competing – they should be very proud of themselves.

Celyn Richards of Penybont YFC has been awarded the Carmarthenshire YFC Junior Member for the year 2022. Celyn Richards is 14 years old – Year 9 at Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bro Myrddin which thoroughly enjoys to sing in her spare time.

Celyn is the minute secretary for her Club but also the minute secretary on this year’s County Youth Forum.

One of Celyn’s highlights was representing Carmarthenshire and Wales in a national YFC public speaking competition. Although they couldn’t meet to compete together as a team, it was a highlight because it was still an opportunity for her to compete as part of the organization over Zoom, which has become a big thing in our lives recently.

Celyn’s ambition outside the YFC is to succeed in going to university to study Music and Welsh, and then to return to her home area to live and work. With coming home to her living area she feels that she’ll have the opportunity to give back to the organization by helping the younger generation.
