Young Builder of the Year Awards

The pinnacle of our annual recognition scheme

Celebrating young people’s achievements

The Young Builder of the Year Awards celebrate the achievements of young people, who despite having to overcome a range of challenges, have succeeded in training for and gaining employment in the construction industry.

The winners are unveiled at a prestigious ceremony held at the House of Commons hosted by our President.

In light of the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Young Builder of the Year Awards, along with Youthbuild UK’s other events planned during the year.

However, we are delighted to announce that the 2022 Young Builder of the Year Awards will be held on The House of Commons Terrace on 19th October 2022.
