Science student Usmaan, pictured above with University of Huddersfield Vice Chancellor Prof Bob Cryan, beat two other nominees to the prestigious award at the glamourous awards show.

The 18-year-old was nominated for the community volunteering work he has immersed himself in over the last four years, despite his demanding academic programme at the college.
