The Bristol Young Heroes Awards is an exciting initiative with the third awards ceremony to take place on Friday 1 April 2016 at The Bristol University, Wills Memorial Building on Queens Road. The awards recognise the valuable contribution that Bristol’s young people (aged 11-19) make to the city - particularly those who have overcome difficult circumstances, made a difference in the lives of others or achieved great things.   
 
Three nominees from each of the 7 categories (below) will attend the event as guests of honour with the winning young heroes announced on the night. There will also be an 8th Award for 'Overall Young Hero', chosen from all of the nominees on the night.
 
If you know a Young Hero and would like to nominate them please visit: www.bristolyoungheroesawards.co.uk and fill in the short form. The more information you can give about the nominee the better, as this helps the judges.
