The votes have been cast, counted - now you can meet the winners! (If these categories were any more hotly contested, we’d have to carry the virtual ballot boxes with oven gloves!).

The Beano Power Awards are our way of tipping our hat, bumping elbows, or simply saying thank you to those who’ve inspired us or kept us entertained during the trickier moments of 2021. 

Drum roll, please!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the football star hit the news headlines for his part in raising millions of pounds for the food waste charity Fare Share, and and successfully campaigned against the government to provide school meals to families who needed them over the school holidays. He also launched a book club for disadvantaged children. And while he wasn’t being an actual hero, he also found time to represent England at the Euros in the summer. You responded to his selflessness by crowning him winner of the Positive Impact Award, which is surely better than a Euros champion medal.
