That's why the Yorkshire Evening Post wanted to give readers a way to say a public well done all those who have made them burst with pride.

We invited parents, grandparents, friends and family to send in a message of congratulations to anyone in their life who was collecting their GCSE or A-Level results, has completed a degree, has finished an apprenticeship or has achieved their vocational qualification at college.

Those messages were published in our Saturday September 4 edition and we're sharing them here for those who might have missed out on picking up a paper.
