The youth of St Helens had a chance to show off their skills at an annual Youth Week event.
SCAMJAM is Break O'Day's annual skate and scooter competition, and is organised and run by the young people of Break O'Day, alongside the Break O'Day Council, state government, and Youth Week Tasmania 2019.
Each year Youth Week aims to celebrate the efforts and contributions of young people, and this year ran from April 10 to 17.
One of the organisers of this year's SCAMJAM event was Tyron Goodsell, who was also last year's winner.
This year Tasmanian surf and skate store Red Herring also came onboard, donating prizes such as skate lessons for the most promising skateboard rider.
Scooter riders Julius Petrohilos and Jett McLoughlin also came to the event. The two judged the competition and provided some inspiration with demonstrations throughout the day.

"SCAMJAM is a great fun day just to get together, to catch up with everybody and to share some skills," he said.
Break O'Day mayor Mick Tucker said he was very proud of this event, which the community's youth takes on every year.
"Not only is it a great experience in terms of skill development and being a part of a community event, it fosters pride and confidence in the youth's achievements," he said.
This year there was fierce competition, with 17 participants competing.
Other Northern Youth Week events included the City of Launceston's Sounds on the Street and the West Tamar Council's Beaconsfield Youth and Community Festival.
