This year's winners: Wiltshire Council
Wiltshire Council were declared 2014 Young Local Authority of the Year at Lancaster in February. The Argument paper delivered by Lucy James and Alissa Davies was praised by the adjudicators as 'thoughtful, original and expressive, bristling with good writing and logical argument'.
The runners-up were Leeds City Council (last year's winners). Clemency Capel-Bird and Rosie Pollock were described as 'a well-contrasted duo whose paper was genuinely enlightening'.
Waverley Borough Council (Helen Burgess and Gareth Nichols) were highly commended for their 'well-crafted paper'.
