Thanks to sponsors, every child, including other finalists, received a trophy and a voucher of their choice for a range of activities including trampolining, cinema, bowling and climbing.
Cllr Craig Hannaway, Cabinet Member for Children at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said: “These awards are a fantastic way to recognise young people’s hard work and achievements and I am delighted this is being considered as an annual event.
“The categories really reflect the children’s contribution to their schools and community, and I would like to congratulate the nominees, finalists, teachers and parents for all their hard work.”
Alison Hill, strategic lead and head teacher at Wilton Primary School said: “We are incredibly proud of all the children who attend the schools in the partnership as they never cease to impress us with their resilience, aspirations and sense of fun in all they do.
“The evening had a very positive vibe and everyone present could see the pride on the faces of the children, parents and staff!”
