Outstanding Young Achiever

This award is open to anyone aged 18 or under by January 30, 2018. We are looking for academic or vocational success or achievement in their particular area of expertise. There should be evidence that the young achiever has gone above or beyond regular duties, engaging in activities outside their typical roles or learning. They will clearly impact upon others and make a difference in their environment, community or learning institution.

We encourage nominations from young people themselves or those around them who feel they should be recognised.

This category will be judged by a panel of business people and senior executives from the education sector among the Next Generation Somerset partners.
