Radio 1 launches Teen Awards

Radio 1 is looking for the nation's most inspirational teenagers as part of their first ever Teen Awards.

Listeners have two weeks to nominate youngsters, and the winners will be announced at a special ceremony at London's Hammersmith Apollo next month.

Nominations can be made online for the three categories in the awards – Teen Hero, Teen Community Hero and Teen Entrepreneur. After shortlisting, a panel of industry insiders, experts and celebrities will meet to discuss the entries and select the winners.

These very special Teen Hero awards will be presented alongside awards for top stars from the music and entertainment world in 2010 and will form the centrepiece of the ceremony on 14 November.

The star-studded event is set to feature performances from some of the biggest music stars in the teen world.

Ben Cooper, Deputy Controller of Radio 1, says: "I'm passionate that Radio 1 supports and celebrates young people of the UK who make a difference to the lives of their family, friends or community. This BBC event will recognise outstanding contributions by young people – I’m looking forward to seeing the nominations and I’m sure picking only three winners will be a tough job."

The Radio 1 Teen Awards will be shown on television too – on BBC Three – and as part of the build-up there'll be a series highlighting the lives of inspirational teenagers on Radio 1's Sunday night show, The Surgery, hosted by Aled Haydn Jones.
