Celebrating the extraordinary things ordinary young people do
You might not be able to actually see their gold stars, but every day young people are making a huge difference to other people's lives across the UK.
They are giving first aid, befriending vulnerable people, and fundraising and campaigning for good causes.
The British Red Cross Humanitarian Citizen Awards celebrate community heroes aged 25 and under, both individuals and groups of young people.
So if you know someone who does something extraordinary, why not celebrate them?
