Over 300 of the best Young Ambassadors from across the country will descend on Wembley Stadium today for the second Young Ambassador Celebration Day.

Joining them will be a fleet of inspirational athletes, including London 2012 Olympic canoe gold medallist Tim Baillie, double Paralympic medallist Ian Rose, footballer Kelly Smith, England women's all-time leading goalscorer, Olympic hockey bronze medallist Alex Danson, and wheelchair rugby ace Steve Brown.

Workshops on the day are all about being creative, with the challenge of articulating skills gained as a Young Ambassador to come up with cool ideas and exciting projects.

The Athlete Mentors will pass on their tips and guidance throughout the day, and will help present the National Young Ambassador Awards, which will recognise the outstanding work the Young Ambassadors do in leading PE and school sport across the country.

Ian Cawley, Development Manager for Young Ambassadors at the Youth Sport Trust said:

"Last year's Young Ambassador Celebration Day was a fantastic event, and this year it promises to be even bigger and better. The day is a chance for Young Ambassadors to look back on everything they've achieved as leaders, and the activities will challenge them to utilise some of the life skills they have developed."
