The winner of the vocal category was Isabelle Atkinson from Bournemouth, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Bournemouth, and the winner of the instrumental category was Charlotte Horne from Blandford, sponsored by the Blandford Rotary Club.

Both will now go forward to the Regional Final at Frome on April 6 with the opportunity to progress to the national final of Rotary Young Musician at Truro in May.
