Speaker's School Council Awards

This annual awards scheme helps to celebrate and recognise the achievements of your school council.

Speaker's School Council Awards

We want to hear about projects that made a difference in your school or community. Big or small, tell us how your school council's efforts have led to a positive change.

For inspiration, check out some of the entries from this year or our handy teacher’s resources

The scheme is open to every infant, primary and secondary school in the UK. A winning school council in each of four age categories receives an award:

  • Infant age (4-7)
  • Junior age (8-11)
  • Secondary age (12-16)
  • Young adults (17-19)

Every school council that enters receives a prestigious certificate and a web badge. Winning councils will be invited to Parliament to attend an awards ceremony in the Speaker’s Apartments where you will be presented with a trophy by the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon. John Bercow MP.

The competition opens on 22 February 2016. Find more information including tips for getting your project started and how to enter at www.speakersschoolcouncil.org
