These awards recognise any young person who lives in Somerset and has done something in the last 12 months to make you proud.  It could involve sport, school, volunteer work, overcoming an illness, helping parents and grandparents or just being a great friend.

Finn was critically ill as a baby and despite repeated hospital visits throughout his life, he has been determined to be seen as 'the same as everyone else' and is pursuing his dream of working in agriculture – as well as playing football.
