Mayflower Youth Awards 2020 Ceremony

The Restorative Justice for All International Institute is hosting FRED's Mayflower Youth Awards 2020, which forms part of the ‘Sailing the Mayflower‘ project and celebrates diversity and the contributions of migrants and refugees.

Sailing the Mayflower is a youth-led project which takes the sailing of the Mayflower as inspiration to bring young people together to celebrate the contribution of migrants and refugees in Southwark and across London.

As part of this exciting competition, organisers are asking young people between the ages of 10 and 25 to make a submission for the chance to win some amazing prizes.

Young people can submit a piece of work in one of the following categories:



  • Art (e.g. drawing, painting, photograph or film)

  • Writing (e.g. poem, story, blog post or research paper)

  • Music, dance and drama (e.g. song, instrumental, dance video or play recording)

  • Community (e.g. inspiring previous work in a community project)



Submissions should celebrate diversity and the contributions of migrants and refugees in the UK.



The winners of each category will be awarded an amazing prize by sponsors. Prizes include iPads, tablets, free trips to London Zoo and Kew Gardens, Oliver Bonas goodie bags plus a £50 high street gift voucher. Runners-up will receive a £30 gift voucher.


Submissions will be judged by the Youth Management Board, made up of a small group of young activists from across the world, who will be accepting submissions up until the end of September.

FRED (Fairness, Respect, Equality, Dignity) is managed by young people who, with the support and mentorship of our charitable institute, want to challenge perceptions and address problems of cohesion and discrimination in society through the delivery of high-quality projects and volunteering opportunities.

The competition will culminate in a virtual awards ceremony on 28 October, 2020.

On the day of the event you will be emailed a link to the online awards ceremony where you will be able to take a tour of the best submissions and watch the sponsors announce the winners and runners-up.

You will also be able to watch the keynote speakers' speeches.
