The Bradford Youth Awards took place at Bradford’s St George’s Hall on the 9th March 2011 and we, at BCB Xtra, went to cover the awards for an upcoming show!
Me, Other Matt, and Hannah were to interview (hopefully) all the winners, nominees, and hopefully some celebrity guests! BBC Look North’s Christa Ackroyd was there to show her support for the awards and Hannah made the fatal , but easy to make, mistake of telling her we were from the BBC!
In and amongst our mistakes we did manage to successfully interview and congratulate many of the winners of the night, of which there were 12, and many of the nominees, who were all praised for what they have brought to Bradford over the years, and especially in the past calendar year.
The winners were:
Make a Positive Contribution – Israr Mohammed (11 and under) and Coran Oxley (12 – 25)
Be Healthy – Jamie Li (11 and under) and Grosvenor Youth Committee (12 – 25)
Enjoy & Achieve – Buddy Lambert (11 and under) and Lewis Birkinshaw (12 – 25)
Stay Safe – PALZ Manningham project (11 and under) and Natalie Sargent (12 – 25)
Achieve Economic Well-Being – Eastwood Year 6 Enrichment Group (11 and Under) and Dominic Humble (12 – 25)
Group Award – Keighley United
Outstanding Achievement – Coran Oxley
All the celebrities from the night were very friendly and happy to talk to us, Matt even got an autograph off of Sam Ashton after his interview! Hannah also managed to get an interview with Christa Ackroyd as I have previously referred to
We all had a brilliant night and we shall hopefully be completing the show on the 15th of March and I will let you know when it is aired!
