In a closely run race, Scott Beasley has been voted the first Directly-Elected Youth Mayor of Mansfield.
Turnout was high with more than three and a half thousand young people voting in this first Youth Mayor election.
Scott scored 1208 votes, 91 more than Holly Papper who received 1117 votes and becomes the District's first Deputy Youth Mayor.
The other results are as follows:
Stephanie Le Page: 701 votes
Melissa Peet: 518 votes

Jessika Brown: 75 votes
Scott is 17 years old and is studying for A-levels in Law, Business Studies and ICT at Queen Elizabeth's School in Mansfield.
Scott is thrilled at the result: "It's awesome. It was nerve wracking waiting for the results to come in, I knew I stood a good chance but I was still surprised when the results were read out."
"I will be a representative for young people and bring forth their views to the Council. My priorities are to provide more leisure activities for young people and to reduce crime in the area."
Mansfield's Executive Mayor, Tony Egginton, commented: "I am delighted for Scott that he has been elected as Mansfield's Youth Mayor. Having stood in two Mayoral elections myself, I fully understand how nerve-wracking it is waiting for the results."
"I send my heart-felt congratulations to Scott, our new Youth Mayor, and to Holly, his Deputy. I look forward to working with them over the coming year."
"One of my first acts will be to present them to a meeting of our Full Council on Tuesday evening."
"Having worked closely with the candidates throughout the campaign, I would like to send my thanks to all of them who stood and expressed excellent ideas. I would also like to thank all of those within the District Council, at Notts County Council and at Connexions, who have worked hard to make this campaign a great success."
