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 – KS1&2, KS3&4, post 16 and team with a winner for each category. Each of the four winners will attract a grant of £50 to be put towards the charity or project they select.  If the judges deem that no application of suitable quality has been made in a particular category then they reserve the right not to make a grant in that year.

All those entered by their school or youth organisation will be invited, with their parents and representatives of their club or organisation, to the presentation evening at Thornbury Town Hall to collect a certificate signed by the Mayor and hear the judges announce the overall winner of each category.

Please see the rules & conditions on the nomination form below:
