YOPEY logoCambridge MP David Howarth has been selected again to join the judges in the county's annual Young People of the Year Awards.

Mr Howarth, along with the panel of judges chosen from dignitaries, young people and sponsors, will select the winners for their outstanding achievements.

The young people aged between 10 and 25 may have been running clubs, volunteering or helping those less fortunate than themselves.

Mr Howarth, who joins the panel of judges for the third year running, said: "I am always inspired by the achievements of our young people and delighted to be joining the judging panel again.

"Despite bad news stories in the press about youngsters, most are keen to take part in worthwhile activities and play an active part in society.

"These awards celebrate their remarkable achievements and give them well-deserved recognition. "

The awards, which will be presented at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford tomorrow (Saturday, October 10), carry prize money which winners will share with a good cause of their choice.
