Hopeful candidates to be Camden’s next Youth MP, or one of two Deputy Youth MPs, are standing for election this month.
If you are of secondary school age and live, go to school, college, a youth project or work in Camden you can vote in the election, which is taking place at schools and youth centres in Fortune Green, West Hampstead, Kilburn and Swiss Cottage, and in other parts of Camden, from 14 to 23 March.
The Youth MP, and two Deputy Youth MPs, are elected for two years and will be the voice for young people in Camden, representing their interests in local decision-making.
They will also put forward the views and interests of local young people at regional and national level through their participation in the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP).
Hannah Morris, Camden's Youth MP for 2014-16, has twice spoken in the House of Commons during national UKYP debates, as well as meeting local and national decision-makers, writing a column for the local press, chairing Youth Council meetings and working on campaigns such as UKYP’s Make Your Mark.
Hannah said: "My experience as a youth MP has been phenomenal. Of course, it is hard work and exasperating at times, but the sense of achievement and success is definitely worth it.
“I've worked with such a variety of people and have had so many opportunities and experiences. It's an extraordinary job filled with memories you'll never forget."
