Launched last year, the 2013 Surrey Young Superstars awards rewarded and showcased young people’s efforts and honoured them for their hard work and achievements in Surrey. The awards culminated in a glittering awards ceremony hosted by top comedian Rob Brydon.
The awards event for all 2014 prizewinners will take place on Friday May 9, 2014 at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Mill Studio.
Award categories, include:
• Caring Superstar
• Volunteering Superstar
• Business Superstar
• Sporting Superstar
• Fundraising Superstar (5-12 years)
• Fundraising Superstar (13-19)
• Courageous Superstar
The new category, Courageous Superstar, will seek to reward a young person who has overcome adversity, be that illness, disability or disadvantage, to achieve and exceed their goals with a positive and inspiring attitude on those around them.
Judged by the panel of organisers and sponsors, the winner of the top award, Superstar of the Year, will receive four tickets to the popular Yvonne Arnaud Christmas pantomime in 2014, in addition to an award trophy and certificate.
