G-Nation will award eight regional prizes of up to £1000 and a top prize that offers winning students the chance to experience directly the work of charities in the UK and overseas.The Awards are open only to UK Secondary Schools, Secondary Deemed Middle Schools and Special Schools with secondary pupils.The organisers explain that the awards “were created to bring recognition and give visibility to existing activity for charity and community – not to give pupils a competitive reason to help.” They “acknowledge the thousands of schools across the nation whose efforts for others seek no reward or recognition, and work to support not lead that activity.” Entries to this year’s G-Nation awards for young people close on 18 July. The winners will get to spend a week with Sightsavers International in Kenya.The awards are designed to bring attention to the work done by schools that support charity and community. To enter, school-children have to create a charity team among their classmates, get active in volunteering and campaigning, and then report back via the competition website.
