The awards were created to recognise the great deeds and often extraordinary contributions made by people from all walks of life.
Congratulating the winners, First Minister of Wales Carwyn Jones said:
“What a fantastic group of winners – congratulations to everyone who’s won an award this evening; you’re a credit to your families, friends, communities and Wales as a whole.
“I know there are fantastic people doing exceptional things here in Wales. I’m lucky, as I travel across the country, to see first hand the efforts that people make, day in day out to make Wales as great as it is.
“The St David Awards give us a chance to formally recognise those people who go the extra mile often without the recognition they deserve.”
