We have done the Programme and would like to attend the Awards but don’t want our project to be judged…
Even if you do not want your project to be judged, we still ask you to complete a Project Report Form. This is so that we have the information for the day of the Awards and will ensure young people involved get the recognition they deserve. There is a space on the form to indicate whether or not you want the Project to be judged.
