Youth Awards

We stand out for being outstanding

Young people are outstanding. We know this, we see this in our work and in our communities. We believe that celebrating the youth of our county is the right thing to do.

Not because they need our approval, but because they deserve to be seen and heard. We invite you to join us by nominating outstanding 8-21 year olds in your community. Planned and presented by a team of young people, this is an event by young people for young people. Anyone who is nominated will be invited to our star-studded evening at the New Theatre Oxford on Monday October 17th.

The Youth Awards are a celebration of young people from Oxfordshire. The event will shine a light on Oxfordshire’s outstanding, hard-working and talented children and young people who deserve to be celebrated.

The Youth Awards recognise the efforts AND good intentions of young people, whether making a big impact, like creating new inventions to save the planet from climate change, or by making one person’s life better, we love hearing about them all. Anyone can nominate a young person, be it a teacher, neighbour, youth worker, parent or friend.

Past nominees have told us that their nomination changed the course of their life for the better. So join us in affirming that young people should be a celebrated part of our society. Please nominate today!

 

Don’t forget to nominate!

Anyone can nominate a young person, be it a teacher, neighbour, youth worker, parent or friend.
