Unlocking Potential, Inspiring Change: Nominations Open for the Child of Wales Awards 2024. Prepare for an unforgettable evening on September 27th at Swansea Arena, where we’ll shine a spotlight on the extraordinary achievements and unwavering resilience of Wales’s youth. Join us in making a difference as we raise essential funds for charities committed to empowering children across the nation.

Following the overwhelming success of the previous years’ events, Child of Wales 2024 is once again poised to recognise the extraordinary accomplishments of children nationwide. Now in its third year, the Awards will be an emotional, inspirational, and unforgettable affair for all involved, attracting media personalities, celebrities, sports stars, and international entertainers.

The awards encompass 11 categories honouring personal courage, bravery, sporting and creative achievements, as well as the commendable efforts of children championing causes in their communities, protecting the environment, caring for others, and fundraising.

Individuals eligible for nomination include those facing illnesses, disabilities, bullying, discrimination, or who persevere through struggles to achieve their goals in sports or the arts. The awards seek to honour and celebrate these inspiring individuals who embody resilience, determination, and compassion. Nominations are free and open to children under 18 who are based in or born in Wales.

Visit www.nationalchildrenofwalesawards.org/nomiante-now to view the categories and nominate a remarkable child. Nominations will remain open until June 10, 2024, and judging will begin shortly after. A mixture of representatives from the award sponsors, celebrities, and independent advisors will form the panel that will have to make the difficult decision to pick a winner for each category.

The Child of Wales Awards 2024 wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of businesses passionate about shining a light on these remarkable young people. Opportunities for sponsorship and partnership, including category sponsorship and event partnership, are now available for businesses seeking to make a difference.
