A gigantic congratulations to all nominees and winners of the Youth Awards 2022!
Oxfordshire Youth’s Youth Awards lived up to its promise of being the best ever as hundreds of nominees, performers and guests packed out the New Theatre for a glittering night of fun. This joyous event was beautifully hosted by Ace and Nabila, representing a committee of young people who have dedicated many months to co-producing the ceremony.
The Youth Awards is over for another two years, but it proves that every single hour of every single day, the young people of Oxfordshire are training, learning, reaching out, making, inspiring and creating ever better versions of themselves and the world around them. On Monday night, Oxfordshire seized its chance to show its appreciation and share the love in style.
The audience whooped, cheered and got to its feet for a standing ovation during an emotional evening celebrating our county’s talented 8-21-year-olds in every possible field. In between the award presentations: rappers rapped, actors performed, songbirds sang, dancers wowed and acrobats back flipped their way across the stage. We would like to thank every single one of our nominees and winners for being the stars they are.
