Youth Ambition Awards 2014
The Youth Ambition Awards are back for a second year!
We will be opening for nominations soon. Before then, take a look below at the categories included in this year's awards. Do you know someone who could be a winner?
Young Apprentice of the Year
This award category is open to young people aged between 16 and 22 years of age who have excelled in their apprentice role.
Tell us how they have built up knowledge and skills and used these to progress, and how they have shone in the workplace – this could include how they worked as part of a team and as an individual, or how they have pushed themselves to gain the qualifications needed to be ready for work.
The Arts Award
Think of arts in its widest interpretation. Anything inspired by the arts is included in this category. From fashion to dancing, rapping to acting, skateboarding to graffiti art, sculpture to photography dancing to filming – this award will recognise a committed young person or group of young people who have been inspired by the arts, or used their creativity to make a difference.
A creator or a performer, this young person, or group of young people and their talent stands out in the crowd. This award is open to young people aged between 11 and 22 years of age.
Project or Campaign of the Year
With all the challenges they face today, this category celebrates those young people who have successfully worked together on a project or campaign. It could be large or small, but it will have started out with clear objectives and the young people will be able to show how those objectives have been met.
They will also have used creative ways and communication channels to tackle any issues. The project or campaign could be led by a group or an individual – we want to see how they worked together with their peers and other groups to make it a success story. This award is open to young people aged between 11 and 22 years of age.
Young Role Model of the Year
Putting the spotlight on a young person who is a positive and inspiring role model for other young people is the aim of this award. It could be someone who has overcome a personal barrier, enhanced their local community, performed an act of bravery, excelled in a volunteering role or pushed the boundaries in some way.
Whatever they have done, large or small, it will have made a real difference and inspired others. This award is open to young people aged between 11 and 22 years of age.
Taking Charge of Your Life
This award celebrates a young person who has taken control of his or her life. They may have refused to let adversity define who they are. They might have overcome obstacles or barriers. They may have made some brave choices in their life. Tell us their story.
This award is open to young people aged between 11 and 22 years of age.
