Award for North Walsham student
A student who was the driving force behind a North Norfolk school film project has won a county-wide youth award,
Matthew Neave, 17, scooped the culture award at the third annual running of the Bernard Matthews Youth Awards.
Inspirational young people were honoured for their achievements, courage and success at ceremony presented by Blue Peter's Helen Skelton.
Matthew was the leading light behind a North Walsham High School's film project which involved students from England, Germany and Romania working together.
The project – which lasted two-and-a-half-years – involved creating a full-length original feature film that was based on vampirism and filmed on location in Transylvania.
The awards, staged at OPEN in Norwich, are sponsored by the EDP, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, OPEN Youth Trust, and The Garage.
Lorna Cousins, marketing controller communications for Bernard Matthews, said she was amazed by the standard of entries for this year's youth awards and she said every single finalist was a winner.
