The search for the region’s brightest and bravest young people in 2016 got off to a flying start with the launch of the Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards.

The two-part launch took place at ITV Yorkshire followed by a reception for sponsors and supporters at the West Park Hotel in Harrogate.

The 24th awards will recognise the achievements of outstanding young people aged under 35 years who have made an impact, whether nationally, regionally or locally. To nominate a potential winner, just visit the awards website at yorkshireyoungachievers.co.uk or contact Sonia Jones at McCormicks Solicitors, Harrogate, awards sponsors, on 01423 530630. The awards are organised by the Yorkshire Young Achievers Foundation and have raised more than £1 million to support young people in Yorkshire.
