Try Angle Awards 2018

These awards were introduced in 1994 to raise the profile of people aged 11-18 or who are special needs aged up to 25 in the community who really try, often with little recognition, to do their best. Every young person nominated is recognised for their nomination, panels will select district finalists in each category and the overall 24 Spirit Finalists will be invited to the Spirit of Try Angle County final in November.

Nominations for the 2018 Try Angle Awards closed on 20 September 2018.
