Nominations for Mayor's Youth Awards Now Closed

The Mayor of Thornbury’s Youth Awards are prestigious awards made by Thornbury Town Council. Annually, they give due recognition to the many young people of the Town who give their own time and voluntary effort in supporting and assisting individuals, charities or projects with no payment or reward for themselves other than the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing fully to the community in which they live.

There are four categories this year:

  1. COVID-19 Support Efforts
  2. Unsung Hero
  3. Wider Community Change
  4. Team

Along with a judging panel, the Town Mayor will evaluate the applications, each of which will be awarded with a certificate. Winners will be chosen from each category with an overall winner announced. We know that during 2020/21, whilst there have been many challenges, many young people have done wonderful things to help within their community and we want to hear about them.
