The names of the people, places and organisations shortlisted for the 6th Child Friendly Leeds awards have been revealed.
The annual awards ceremony will take place in February this year, and will celebrate all the work that is happening across the city to make Leeds the best place for children and young people to grow up in.
The prestigious city-wide event is being planned by a group of 13 young people called The Dynamics. They have been working hard to organise every aspect of the awards, including merchandise, venue décor and selecting the young performers from Leeds who will entertain guests on the night. The Dynamics will also be the hosts of the evening.
There will be eight awards categories presented, including the brand new category ‘Youth Group of the Year’. This will recognise those groups of young people who have made a positive difference to children in Leeds.
There were a record number of nominations received this year, with just under 600 nominations being made across the eight categories.
This made shortlisting an extremely difficult job for the judging panel. 42 nominees were chosen, and there will be 8 winners announced on the night, in front of an audience of around 400 people including a number of city leaders, VIP and supporters.
