The Vibe Awards 2018

Vibe Page Header

This annual young people’s celebration event held by Darlington Borough Council is entering its 22nd year. At last year’s ceremony over 100 young people received a Vibe Award and young people from Acropolis – gymnastic club, Stagecoach and the Hippodrome’s Youth Dance Group performed.

This year the Vibe Awards is taking centre stage at the first ever Vibe Fest. Vibe Fest is going to be an outdoor event celebrating all that is positive about growing up in Darlington. The market square will be filled with fun and exciting activities for children and young people to take part in but the main focus will be the stage where the Vibe Award Ceremony will take place along with entertainment supplied by local bands.

The aim of the Vibe Awards is to recognise all those young people who have made a significant achievement and progression in their life.

Young people from Darlington can be nominated for any of the categories below and it can be about recognising the distance they have travelled as much as the outcome of their efforts:

  • Contribution to the Community – 10 to 19 years
  • Contribution to the Arts – 10 to 19 years
  • Achievement Against the Odds in Life – 10 to 19 years
  • Achievement Against the Odds in Learning – 10 to 19 years

For more information on the categories please see the Vibe Award poster [pdf document].

Nominations will be shortlisted and special awards given to the most inspiring nominations.
