The PoSBOs, now in their seventh year, celebrate and acknowledge the hard work and contribution that young people across the region have made in their local communities in the past year.
The tagline for the PoSBOs 2016 is “celebrating Young People in the North East” because we believe that the work young people do to benefit communities across the North East should be celebrated and recognised.
The awards are hosted annually by Youth Focus: North East and are organised and ran by young volunteers from the PoSBO Steering Group.
