The Young person chosen to hold the position for one year will recieve £150 and be invited to some of the events the 789th Mayor of Bath will attend throughout his term in Office. The runner up will recieve £50.

Candidates and their nominator will both need to be available to attend a 10 minute interview on the afternoon of Monday 11 July and the Presentation Ceremony will take place at 5.30 pm on Thursday 14 July at the Guildhall.
