Argus launches Youth In Action Education Awards
10:00am Wednesday 26th February 2014 in News
The Argus is hosting an exciting new awards ceremony for the county’s youngsters this summer.
The first ever Youth in Action Education Awards will be held at the American Express Community Stadium on Sunday June 8.
Every week, dozens of youngsters feature in the pages of Youth in Action for their academic conquests and sporting prowess – these awards aim to recognise their success further.
A panel of judges will have the unenviable task of whittling down nominees to determine the winners for each of the 17 categories.
Editor of The Argus Michael Beard will head up the panel, and is excited to bring the awards to the people of Sussex.
He said: “We are absolutely delighted to be launching these awards because it gives our readers the chance to reward someone for their achievements which usually go unnoticed and unheralded.
“We anticipate an incredible response from the schools, parents and pupils which we hope will make these awards the success they deserve to be for the nominees.”
The MC on the night will be Shoreham-based professional speaker and business consultant Sarah Hopwood, whose interview on the awards and education can be found on the next page.
But, it’s not just students who will be celebrated at the Amex, but the people responsible for getting them to the top of their game.
From the top teachers to the best dinnerladies – these awards aim to celebrate everything that is great about education.
