After a short wait, today we have revealed the names of our 2022 CVQO Westminster Award finalists. This announcement is always a bittersweet moment, due to the incredibly high standard of the young people we have met along the way.
Of course, we wish we could take every one of them to Cornwall and the House of Lords. They have all been such wonderful ambassadors both for CVQO and their respective youth groups and we know they will go on to achieve brilliant things.
For the 15 finalists below, a summer of adventure in Cornwall awaits. We will be working with local charities, a worldwide humanitarian aid organisation and adventure training companies on a varied programme of activities. It promises to be a life-changing trip and we can’t wait to get started.
