Try Angle Awards

“Recognising the efforts and achievements of young people in our community”

 The Try Angle Awards are awards for young people aged 10 –18. They were introduced in 1994 to raise the profile of the vast majority of young people in the community who really do TRY, often with little recognition, to DO THEIR BEST!!


 All nominees, together with their guests, are invited to a very high profile presentation evening organised and ran by the Medway Youth Parliament.  At this event everyone who is nominated receives a certificate of recognition and the winning nominee in each category receives a Try Angle Award trophy.
