Nominations Close for Bristol Young Heroes Awards on Saturday 22nd December.
Every year Bristol holds a gala dinner and awards ceremony called the Bristol Young Heroes Awards (BYHA) which pays tribute to the young people of the city aged 11-19 who are overcoming challenges to achieve something amazing in the face of adversity.
BYHA was founded in 2013 to highlight the incredible things Young People are doing in the city and to counter the surge of negative press they were getting, especially after the riots in 2012.
The event has grown year on year and has now recognised over 120 young people. The aim is to not only have a one-off event to give a pat on the back and thank these amazing young people, but to partner with local businesses and programmes in Bristol to mentor and support the nominees after the awards to achieve their full potential and fulfill their dreams… whatever they may be.
The Bristol City Youth Council play a large role in choosing the nominees and the Youth Mayors will be presenting an award at the 2019 awards which will be held on Friday 5th April at We the Curious.
