2016 competition opens on 22 February!

Celebrate the achievements of your school council.

It's easy to enter - just tell us about the difference you made 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 your school council's efforts led to a positive change.

The deadline for entries is Monday 16 May 2016.
