We're excited to announce that nominations are officially open for the highly anticipated Child of Wales Awards 2024! Set to take place at Swansea Arena on September 27, 2024, this prestigious annual event shines a bright light on the remarkable achievements and resilience of the young people of Wales, all while raising vital funds for charities dedicated to supporting children across the nation.

After the overwhelming success of our previous events, we're thrilled to be back for our third year, ready to recognise the extraordinary accomplishments of children nationwide. As ever, the Child of Wales Awards 2024 promises to be an emotional, inspirational, and unforgettable affair for all involved, attracting media personalities, celebrities, sports stars, and international entertainers.

Our 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.

We invite you to nominate a remarkable child who embodies resilience, determination, and compassion. Whether they're facing illnesses, disabilities, bullying, discrimination, or persevering through struggles to achieve their goals in sports or the arts, we want to hear their story. Nominations are free and open to children under 18 who are based in or born in Wales.

A panel of representatives from our award sponsors, celebrities, and independent advisors will have the challenging task of selecting 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.
