We're positive the kids are alright ... so share all your top teen stories

Teenagers deserve recognition
Teenagers deserve recognition

Teens these days often get a bad press. But not from your Star.

We're keen to this week accentuate all the positives our young people achieve all the time all across our area.

What better time, when so many students are still celebrating collecting great GCSE grades recognising all their hard work, to appeal for such stories.

Duke of Edinburgh's Award, Headstart, Step Forward or simply working within South Yorshire's community ... we want to hear your uplifting examples now to add to National Citizen Service and Millmoor Juniors coverage already planned,.

Email copydesk.southyorks@jpress.co.uk case study and contact details and we'll do the rest, loudly and proudly publicising positive actions of our deserving teenagers.
