The PoSBOs 2016: Shortlist Announced

For seven years the PosBOs have recognised and rewarded the fantastic volunteering and positive contributions to communities by young people aged 11-25 in our region.

We would like to thank everyone who nominated in this year’s PoSBOs. The judging process was incredibly tough, with a host of inspirational young people and projects being put forward for our eight awards.

We’re pleased to announce the final shortlist for each category – winners will be unveiled at our awards ceremony on 8 December at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead.

We are also proud to announce that in recognition of Jodie Wilkinson’s volunteering with us on the Truth About Youth project – the original home of the PoSBOs – and her tragic death this year we are renaming the Inspirational Young Person or Group Award the Jodie Wilkinson Inspirational Award.
