A YOUNG people's project hopes to have won a place in the finals of a national competition.
Batley Heritage Library - an archive tracing the town's social history over the past 60 years - is a joint project between Batley Boys' High School, Howden Clough Girls' High School and the Indian Muslim Welfare Society (IMWS).
It is one 25 schemes waiting to find out if they have made it to the finals of The Philip Lawrence Awards.
The competition promotes the work of young people in their communities.
The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on December 9.
Batley Boys' High School was awarded £20,000 from Barclays Bank to create the library this year.
The aim of the project is to promote greater understanding across communities.
"We are delighted to be selected for this final stage," said a spokesman from the IMWS. "The competition was extremely tough."
Head teacher Philip Lawrence was stabbed to death in 1995, when he intervened to protect a pupil from an attack outside his north London school.
His widow, Frances Lawrence, said: "The awards seek to reward and encourage young people to support each other, combat racism and violence and promote community activity.
"All too often, the positive role of young people is overlooked," she added.
