A final call for nominations for the 2019 Children & Young People’s Services Awards 2019

Over the next two weeks colleagues will have the opportunity to submit a nomination for the 2019 Children and Young People’s Services Awards if you haven’t already, I would urge everyone to take some time to consider contributing.

This high profile, annual awards programme is one of the ways in which the Council recognises and celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of its children and young people and this year it is going to look a little bit different!

All short listed nominees will be invited to a glittering awards ceremony on the afternoon of Tuesday 17th September 2019 at the Beach Ballroom, where the winners will be announced.
There are 13 different award categories  to choose from; covering a wider variety of achievements, and nominations can be submitted by anyone.
In response to feedback we have slimmed down the information we ask for at this initial stage to make submitting a nomination easier. Nominations can be submitted using the following link:
which takes you to an on-line nomination form asking for minimal information at this stage.

We would really appreciate if any final nominations can be submitted by 5 pm on Friday 3rd May 2019 so that short listing can take place soon after.

If your nomination is successful we will be in touch to ask that you support the creation of a two minute short film to showcase the nomination. These short films will be shown at the awards ceremony to help cut down on the number of speeches and ensure that we keep the achievements of the children and young people at the forefront of our mind. Instructions and further information will be sent to the schools of those shortlisted along with offers of help to pull the films together.
Please make all of this information available to all members of your school community and encourage nominations from staff, children and young people, parents and other in members of the community
