Derbyshire Believes In Me Awards 2018

Nominations are invited for all children in care or in a fostering family who are now currently in reception year at school up to and including those who finished year 11 in July 2017 and therefore had their GCSE results in August 2017.

Please complete the nomination form, stating in a maximum of 150 words, why you think the young person you are nominating deserves recognition. Parts of your statement will be read out on the evening.

Receipt of nominations will be acknowledged. Nominations will be considered by a panel of judges and those who are successful will be informed with details of the event in January 2018.
