The big day approaches for the 47 finalists who are on tenterhooks as they look forward to the awards ceremony on Thursday 7 December where the winners will be announced.
The awards celebrate the achievements of young people aged 14-25 who are changing lives for the better in communities across South Ayrshire.
The finalists have been recognised under a number of categories; they are inspirational volunteers, have helped others turn their lives around or are excelling at sport.
