Start thinking about your next project!

The next competition launches on Monday 20th February 2017

We want to hear about a student initiated project that has made a difference in your school or community.

The size of your project doesn’t matter. It could be anything from increasing the number of recycling bins in your school to campaigning to save local wildlife.

What matters is that democracy and teamwork led to a positive change.

The Speaker’s School Council Awards are open to every infant, primary, secondary and SEN school in the UK.

A winning school council will be awarded in each of four age categories:
