Schools are a key part of the community and the Lynn News Education Awards, in association with Learning Resources, celebrates this fact.
One of the 12 awards to be presented during the awards ceremony at Lynnsport on Wednesday, November 19, is the Contribution to the Community award.
The category, which is sponsored by West Norfolk Council and the West Norfolk Partnership, will recognise an individual, class or school who are providing a service benefiting the wider community.
The judges seek activities and initiatives showing a real commitment to the area.
Council leader Nick Daubney said: “The achievements of our young people are critical to the future economic growth and success of West Norfolk. Businesses need well qualified and skilled employees and schools play a key role in developing that future workforce.
“But it is more than that. We recognise that a successful school plays a vital role within the community in which it is based. It can help strengthen a community and bring people together to help ensure the success of the young people attending that school.
“This award is an opportunity for schools to demonstrate and highlight great examples of the work they do to engage with their local community.”
With just two weeks to go until nominations close, there is no better time to tell us about the good your school is doing in its community.
If you know of an initiative that is making a real difference to people’s lives, then follow the instructions shown in the panel to submit a nomination.
