BYC is delighted to recognise 13 individuals and organisations for their innovative and exciting approach to youth participation in our final round of Youth on Board Awards for 2012.

The awards are an exclusively youth-led rolling scheme that celebrate the valuable contribution that young people make to running organisations and projects. 

Winners in this round include 'Get Money Savvy', a youth-led campaign calling for good-quality personal finance education for all children and young people, and the work being done across Norfolk by their seven Youth Advisory Boards made up of around 140 young people who maintain a strategic overview of local youth provision across the district based on the needs of the young people in the area.

We will continue the Youth on Board Awards in 2013, and hope to see even more nominations from different sectors. Find out how to nominate.
