  • schools
  • youth groups
  • others who work with young people

We'd like you to nominate young people who have shown exceptional volunteering and/or leadership commitment and determination in any of the five categories available:

Benefitting the Community

This award if for a young person who's worked to make a difference in the community and raised awareness of the positive contribution young people can make to society. This could be through things like:

  • volunteering
  • fundraising
  • setting up a much needed project
  • breaking down barriers
  • bringing diverse groups of people together

Overcoming Adversity

We want to recognise a young person that's had challenges to work through - this could be someone that:

  • overcame personal barriers to achieve success
  • made a stand against bullying or discrimination
  • worked to support or educate other young people

Young People's Champion

Disabled Young People's Champion

For a young person with a special educational need or disability who:

  • supports other young people to be heard and have a voice
  • supports their peers in challenging situations
  • puts the needs of other people before their own
