The panel also included BBC Sport presenters Jake Humphrey, Ore Oduba, Sonali Shah and previous Young Sports Personality of the Year winner Amy Spencer.
Together, they worked through a huge list of contenders to pick the top 10. All of the young hopefuls have either achieved international success at junior level, or have performed supremely well for their age at senior level.
Past winners of the Young Sports Personality trophy include Tom Daley, Wayne Rooney, Andy Murray and Eleanor Simmonds.
