With all the challenges they face today, this category celebrates those young people who have successfully worked together on a project or campaign. Canon are kindly sponsoring this award.
It could be large or small, but it will have started out with clear objectives and the young people will be able to show how those objectives have been met. They will also have used creative ways and communications channels to tackle any issues.
The project or campaign could be led by a group or individual – we want to see how they worked together with their peers and other groups to make it a success story.
This award is open for young people aged 11 to 22 years.

Last year's winner: Team Phoenix
Team Phoenix is a group of seven pupils from Rushden Academy who help to distribute surplus food from local supermarkets to food banks and night shelters on behalf of the Phoenix Resource Centre charity. The students also gathered food to send to people affected by the earthquake in Nepal and have recently launched a breakfast club to give Year 11 students taking their exams a good start to their day.
