More than 200 people, including leading councillors, business people and teachers will be celebrating the young people's achievements at an awards ceremony at Hinchingbrooke Performing Arts Centre in Huntingdon, on Monday 2 July.

The overall winner will receive £1000 - £500 for themselves and £500 to donate to a young people's organisation.
