Shine Awards

Since we entered the Shine Awards earlier this year we haven't really heard much back from the competition organisers until recently when they announced that we have been nominated for 3 awards.
The three awards are for best commercial strategy, the best over-all content and the most inspirational person (me). We were in the top 43 out of 300 schools.
However on the 22nd May the judges decided which Schools they wanted in the final for the media competition. I'm unsure what category we are still nominated for however we will be going to the final in London on the 25th of June 2012!
Since then we have been featured in 3 newspapers. (The Evening Gazette - Page 12, The Northern Echo - Page 4 and The Advertiser - Front page!

Despite other entered schools being private and grammar schools I'm confident that we will be able to walk away with at least 1 award next month.
