DYW D&A Recognition Awards 

DYW D&A Recognition Awards 2020!

In light of COVID 19 we will not be holding our annual
recognition awards in June 2020. Instead we are looking for our DYW Dundee and Angus Champions who drive forward the aims and objectives of DYW in this area and deserve to be rewarded.

After the closing date the DYW Team will review all nominations and decide who our DYW Champions are for 2020. The Champions will be showcased through DYW social media, and will be given their reward in due course.

We are looking for nominations in 3 categories: 


Individual (can be from a business or a school)

School (can be whole school or a particular class/subject area) / College Department

You can nominate yourself, or on somebody’s behalf. You can make as many nominations as you like. 

Making a nomination is easy. Just visit https://bit.ly/DYWAward20form and fill in the form. Remember to include as much detail as possible in your nomination. Also please send any images to go along with your nomination to contact@dywda.co.uk.
