Commenting on the event, Siobhan Craig, Regional Director of The Prince’s Trust in Northern Ireland said: “We are often surrounded by quite negative images of young people, but with these awards The Prince’s Trust is highlighting the success of young people from Northern Ireland, and their very positive participation in the community.

"This event is about celebrating the incredible strength and determination that the young people involved have shown, and the hugely positive impact Trust volunteers, partners and staff have on young people’s lives."

The Northern Ireland Award Recipients will compete against others from 11 Prince’s Trust regional and country Awards for a place on the shortlist for the UK finals.

THe overall winners will be revealed at the Prince’s Trust & RBS Celebrate Success Awards ceremony which will be held in London in the spring of 2005.
