The Bristol Young Heroes Awards 2019 returns for the sixth annual event to celebrate and recognise the valuable contribution that Bristol’s young people make to the city.
So if you know a Young Hero aged 11-19 years old nominate them now below.
Closing Date: Friday 22nd December 2018
We believe when we celebrate lives like these we all benefit.
If we lift a story we can lift a person! In sharing, owning and celebrating these stories, we believe we can contribute to Bristol becoming its best.
We invite City leaders from business, politics, faith groups, sport and entertainment to join with us, the nominee’s families, friends and the young heroes themselves in making Bristol a place in which great things can be achieved in the face of adversity.
