THE Barnsley Chronicle are now accepting applications to find the Young Champions who you think deserve to be recognised.

Young Champions was launched last year to celebrate and recognise the exceptional achievements and efforts of some of the younger members of our community.

The awards will reward our rising stars, aged up to 21, who are shining in the fields of care, fundraising, volunteering, sport and many more.

Chronicle editor Andrew Harrod said: "I am already impressed with the applications we have received and we are looking forward to celebrating the exceptional achievements and efforts of our younger members in society."
