The UK Youth Parliament is a national organisation that aims to give young people aged between 11 and 18, an opportunity to get involved in democracy and decision making at national and local level.
Councillor Toni Coombs, Dorset County Council's cabinet member for children's services, said: "The UK Youth Parliament gives young people a chance to have their say on the issues that matter to them and I'm delighted that so many of our pupils took the opportunity to vote in the Dorset election.
"Well done to all the candidates for putting themselves forward and wanting to make a difference for young people across Dorset. I wish the MYPs and their deputies the very best of luck for the year ahead. I look forward to hearing about their successes soon."
