Children and Young People Now Awards 2019


Nominations are now open for this year’s Children and Young People Now Awards, which includes a category for children’s play.

The Play Award will be presented to the initiative that has done the most to offer children and young people the opportunities to play freely, enjoy childhood and contribute to their social, emotional and physical development. The judges will look for work that has enabled children to follow their own ideas and interest, in their own way.

The Awards showcase learning and best practice across the UK by recognising teams and individuals from the private, public and voluntary sector that work with children and young people, as well as their families.

Other categories include:

  • The Early Years Award
  • Children and Young People’s Champion
  • The Learning Award.


Closing date for nominations: 28 June 2019
