Local dignitaries, sponsors and young people are YOPEY's judges
Below you can read about the sponsors of this YOPEY and some of our dignitary judges.
However these are not all the judges. Every YOPEY since 2006 has been judged by young people or Youth Judges as well as 'great and good'. Every Youth Judge's opinion and votes are as valid and carry the same weight as those of a dignitary or sponsor judge.
YOPEY's aim is to have as many Youth Judges on every YOPEY as dignitary and sponsor judges. If you are aged from 10-25 and would like to be a Youth Judge, please contact us via our Contact Us form, telling us a little bit about yourself and why you would make a good Youth Judge.
The dignitary judges tend to include a representative of the Queen*, a senior clergy, a top police officer, the local MP and councillors as well as representatives of the businesses sponsoring this YOPEY. We are very grateful for their support.
*The Queen is represented by the Lord Lieutenant of the county in which the YOPEY is held or the Vice Lieutenant or a Deputy Lieutenant.
