These awards celebrate the 10th anniversary (in September 2008) of Sir Bernard Crick's report proposing citizenship education in schools. They're being run by the Association for Citizenship Teaching and CSV Education and there is one award for each region of England (two for London).
They are open to primary, secondary and special schools in England, who could win £500 to fund a citizenship project led by young people for young people and their community - and community could mean the school itself, its local community or the wider global community. Applications need to demonstrate that the young people involved "see themselves as agents of change" and that the project "incorporates issues of diversity and cohesion". That looks like a great vehicle for active global citizenship to me!
The deadline for entries is 14 November. Further details and application packs are available on the CSV Education website.
