The Mayor of Thornbury’s Youth Awards are prestigious awards made by Thornbury Town Council. They give due recognition to the young people of the Town who give their own time and voluntary effort in supporting and assisting individuals, charities or projects. The 2021/22 green awards are focused on making a change which has a positive impact on the environment and climate.

There are two categories:

A. Individual
