Angus Youth Awards 2020 winners and finalists

Angus Youth
Friday 6 November 2020

Over the last six months, youth workers from our Communities Team have worked closely with young people through online learning, outdoor activities and detached youth work, providing them with vital support.

Together, young people and the youth work staff have created the Angus Youth Awards to celebrate the achievements of young people. The group are delighted to announce the finalists and winners during National Youth Work Week. This week celebrates youth work and the brilliant outcomes it can help young people to achieve every year. Across Scotland, youth work has provided a lifeline for young people during these difficult times.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a young person for the Angus Youth Awards 2020.  We had over 100 nominations across 10 categories.  Well done to all involved.  See you next year!
