NOMINATE A STAR       #NTLTVirtualStarAwards2020

In light of the current Coronavirus pandemic, we are unsure as to the future of the traditional Star Awards this year as the logistical process of shortlisting and hosting an Award event are currently not within Government recommended guidance. However it has become more important to celebrate how amazing and exceptional that children and young people from North Tyneside Learning Trust schools are.

With this in mind the Trust wanted to maintain the ethos of Star Awards and still encourage nominations of children and young people from Trust schools with a view to having a Virtual Star Awards. Every child or young person nominated will be sent via school or home their certificate, asked to take a selfie with their certificate and upload it to twitter with the #NTLTVirtualStarAwards2020. Laura Dickinson is going to set up and run the social media element and we hope this will motivate, encourage and bring a smile during these challenging times. We have taken away the categories to enable as many children to be nominated as possible.

From meeting the challenges of home schooling to helping out family, friends and the community safely, children and young people from Trust schools are showing themselves to be outstanding.

To honour and recognise this, the Trust and the awards main sponsor Vision for Education are working together to keep 2020 Star Awards open until the end of the academic year for parents, teachers, family and friends to ‘Nominate a Star’.

The online nomination form can be found here

Every child or young person nominated will receive a certificate and will be encouraged to upload a picture of themselves with their certificate to twitter using the #NTLTVirtualStarAwards2020

So if you know of a child or young person who has shown outstanding resilience, adopted a can do attitude, demonstrated exceptional acts of being useful and kind , volunteered to help others or has just been amazing then here is an opportunity to recognise them.

Please don’t delay, get your nominations in today!!
