Inspirational young people from the area are being recognised in the fifth year of the annual 4Uth Awards.
The awards organised by Nottinghamshire County Council in partnership with the Nottingham Post are a celebration of excellence and achievement among our young people including those who have triumphed over adversity, those who care for people around them, those who are working hard within their community to make a difference.
Nominees are identified by peers, youth leaders, teachers and family members as a special source of inspiration.
This year’s awards are launched this week and Chad will feature some of the first young people to be nominated and publish details on how people can nominate over the coming weeks.

Kyle Sherwin, Emilie Wright and Hanna Bagshaw have won the outstanding achievement awards for Ashfield, Mansfield and Newark and Sherwood, respectively.
