Slough Youth Parliament with the support of the Young People’s Service hosted the first Slough Youth Awards in November 2016, and again in November 2017. The awards aim to raise the profile of young people in a positive way by celebrating their achievements in an annual showcase.
This year’s awards ceremony will take place from 7.00pm - 9.30pm on Thursday 8th November 2018 at The Curve, William St, Slough, SL1 1XY.
Nominations are now open for young people aged 11-19 (up to 25 with learning difficulties or disabilities) who live in Slough. Groups can also be nominated. Entry is free and the nomination deadline is 21st September.
Young people can be nominated in one of six categories: young artist, young environmentalist, young inspiration, young entrepreneur, young sportsperson and Slough Voluntary Sector Awards-young volunteer of the year.
