Tendring Youth Awards are keen to promote a positive image of young people. We aim to highlight and celebrate the success of young people and their commitment to the community in and around the Tendring area.
Nominations are now open for the Tendring Youth Awards 2021!
Due to Coronavirus, the committee had to cancel the 2020 Awards - but now they're back! The fifth Tendring Youth Awards will now place on 19 October 2021, instead of the usual July date.
Nominations open on Monday, 12 April 2021, and will close on Friday, 30 July, 2021. will re-launch in the New Year. Any nominations made for the 2020 Awards will be carried forward to 2021, and the age limit on the categories extended by a year so no young people who may have been recognised last year miss out.
