Now in their thirteenth year, there are 23 categories from which to choose, and entry is free. Full details are on the dedicated awards website - - through which all entries must be submitted.

Winners last year included Leap Conflicting Conflict, Liverpool City Council's Instant Response Team, Achievement for All, Kinetic Youth, and the Alexandra Rose Charity. Shropshire Council won the inaugural PSHE Education Award category for its public health PSHE programme.

The awards are judged by an expert panel of professionals as well as a panel of young people, and the winners will be unveiled at an evening ceremony in central London on 21 November.

Alastair Beddow, chair of trustees at the charity Rhythmix, which emerged triumphant in the 2017 Mental Health and Wellbeing award category, said: "Winning has been extremely valuable in raising the national profile of Rhythmix.

"The award has been a catalyst to motivate our staff, trustees and supporters to be more vocal in talking about our success stories, and it has helped to open the door to donors interested in funding future projects."

Take some the time to reflect on the best things you have done during the past year and submit your entries by the deadline of Friday 29 June.
