"I would love to win an Ambition AXA Award to help me become the best trombonist that I possibly can and to try new experiences such as taking part in the International Trombone Festival or playing in the European Youth Orchestra."

The winner will be selected by Alex James, musician; Laura Gander-Howe, Director, Learning & Skills Strategy at The Arts Council England; Amanda Blanc, Chief Executive AXA Commercial Lines and former Headteacher and Chairman of the judges, Sir Alan Steer.

Sir Alan Steer, said:

"The Ambition AXA Awards are all about helping nurture outstanding young talent, and we'd like to encourage people to therefore vote for the person they think is truly dedicated to their field and would reap the most reward from a bespoke development prize. With the public's help, some of these talented youngsters could go on to have a real impact on the world in the future."

The Ambition AXA Awards were launched in March to help support talented, ambitious and dedicated 11 to 18-year-olds in the fields of sport, enterprise, science, the arts, and the community.
