Radio 1's Teen Awards - Teen Heroes 2016
At the heart of the Teen Awards are Radio 1's teen heroes.
The Teen Awards celebrate the selfless, brave and exceptional achievements of young people aged between 12-17.
Whether they've acted selflessly, inspired others within their community or displayed courage and bravery in a tough situation, we'll be celebrating their achievements at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Sunday 23rd October.

In spite of his daily seizures and regular brain surgery, Lewis has been able to help hundreds of poorly and disabled children come together and make friends through his website, Friendfinderofficial.com.
Niamh has had multiple health problems since birth. As a young teenager she was bullied and experienced depression and self-harm. Now she runs an online support group for young people with chronic illnesses through social media.
Joe & Toby
Joe & Toby were in a band with their friend Arran. When Arran was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and sadly passed away, they set out to raise thousands of pounds in his memory.
Lauren & Lucy
Lucy and Lauren were members of a team in the 2015 TeenTech Awards. Their idea for a lightweight medical emergency kit, the Medical Military Shuttle, went on to win the People’s Choice category. Since winning the award they have both gone on to influence other girls, both in the UK and in South America, to follow in their footsteps.
