For a young person (aged 25 or below) who has demonstrated great leadership skills. This might be a participant who has now joined the workforce, or a young musician who has been an integral part of the project.

This award is for leaders aged 25 and under. If the person is over 25, please nominate them for the Inspirational Music Leader Award instead.
