In our area there are many extraordinary young people. Selfless and courageous children of all ages, who may have forsaken some of the joys and freedom of childhood to make special things happen in the face of adversity or personal challenges. We sometimes hear their stories through the media, but mostly the actions of these children are unrecognised.

Bath and North East Somerset Council are launching a new award to celebrate a children and young person who they feel have achieved something special, however big or small, which they feel deserves recognition. There are five main categories for the awards; Courage, Education, Innovation, Sport and Unsung.
