The Young People of the Year awards, backed by Mitsubishi Electric and also sponsored by North Hertfordshire Homes, offer £2,000 in prize money for young winners to share with the community, as well as public recognition for their often unsung efforts.

Typical entries include fundraisers, young carers, club leaders, volunteers on projects at home or abroad and young leaders who pass on academic or sporting skills.

This year’s awards are now is open to young people aged from 10 to 25 who either live, work or study in the county.

Yopey founder Tony Gearing said: “There are many young people in Hertfordshire doing wonderful things for others but they live in the shadow of a well-publicised anti-social minority.

“We need to give young people the respect they deserve and set up the best as positive role models for others.”

Schools, youth organisations, churches and charities across Herts are urged to nominate their young stars, and young people can even nominate themselves.
