Ferndown Upper School pupils have been voting for two students from Dorset to sit as members of the UK Youth Parliament.
UKYP enables young people to use their energy and passion to change the world for the better. Run by young people for young people, UKYP provides opportunities for 11-18 year-olds to use their voice in creative ways to bring about social change.
The UK Youth Parliament has 600 elected MYPs (Members of Youth Parliament) aged 11-18. MYPs are elected in annual youth elections throughout the UK. Any young person aged 11-18 can stand or vote. In the past two years one million young people have voted in UK Youth Parliament elections.
FUS Year 9 student, James Jones, was one of 10 Dorset students standing with elections taking part of schools all over the county. The results will be announced in the Council Chamber, Dorchester on 27 February.
