The Black History Wales Youth Awards provides a platform to recognise and celebrate the achievements of young people of African descent in Wales. Last year, the awards ceremony was held at the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay. Led by Race Council Cymru, the awards ceremony was a huge success, with awards presented by the Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Local Government Professor Mark Drakeford AM. The ceremony and winners received nationwide coverage and prime time spots on BBC News and ITV’s Newsweek. This year, we aim even higher and we want you to be part of it – so please nominate a deserving young person of African and ethnic minority descent.
