We asked young people to write a speech or presentation to tell us why they would make a good Champion. They were also asked to explain climate change and tell us about three groups of people they would like to speak to about reducing their carbon footprint.
However, five young people stood out from the crowd and became the Climate Change Champions for 2011.
- Ellie Meopham, 15, Pembrokeshire;
- Henri French, 16, Carmarthenshire;
- Tom Bevan, 16, Cardiff;
- Hannah Jewell, 16, Mold; and
- Bronwen Davies, 15, Ebbw Vale.
