Today is one of our absolute favourite days in the CVQO calendar – Westminster Award finalist announcement day!
Although we’re celebrating the amazing achievements of a wonderful group of young people, we must also recognise that a group of 40 cadets got through to selection and they all have hugely promising futures ahead of them.
Every young person who made it to that late stage in the competition was there by rights and we could not be prouder of the whole group, who showed grit, resolve and determination throughout.
With that said, unfortunately we only have 10 finalist places available and so without further ado, this year’s group in alphabetical order are:
Ruta Dubinskaite Middlesex & NW London Army Cadet Force
Chlöe Edwards Shropshire Army Cadet Force
Joe Evenden Loughborough Grammar School CCF (Army)
Alfie Green London Fire Brigade
Yasmin Grizzle City of London & NE Sector Army Cadet Force
Elle Hakesley Wolverhampton Sea Cadet Corps
Ben Hunter 1461 (Wigston & District) Squadron RAF Air Cadets
Mitri Sharaiha St John Cymru Wales
Kacie Simmons 54 (Eastbourne) Squadron RAF Air Cadets
Baljodh Singh Holly Lodge CCF (Army)
