This year, Sporting Communities hosted the first ever Derby Youth Awards to celebrate the achievements of young people in the city during the 2019 year.

There were so many amazing, inspirational young people aged 11-25 who were nominated for the 8 categories, however after much deliberation a winner and runner-up was selected for each category. Thank you again to all of our sponsors, especially our headline sponsor Derby City Council.

Please see our finalist below and check out the gallery below to enjoy some pictures from the evening.
