Deadline to nominate Edinburgh Education Stars

The below press release was issued on Monday 4 February by Consolidated PR to highlight the upcoming Scottish Education Awards 2013.

Last chance to submit nominations for Scottish Education Awards 2013

People in Edinburgh are being urged to enter local schools, nurseries or individuals into the Scottish Education Awards 2013 before the deadline for submissions on Friday 22 February 2013.

The awards, which celebrate the achievements of schools and teachers across Scotland, have attracted hundreds of nominations so far but many more schools and individuals are worthy of acknowledgment.

Last year, three schools and one teacher from Edinburgh reached the final of the Scottish Education Awards.

Edinburgh Council's Education Convener, Councillor Paul Godzik, said: "In Edinburgh we have a wealth of talented teachers working in great schools.  Each school has its own projects and successes undertaken by both pupils and teachers and we welcome the opportunity to gain recognition nationally for these projects at the Scottish Education Awards 2013. 

"I would encourage the people of Edinburgh to come forward and nominate the people, schools and projects that have made a difference to education in their local area."

The Scottish Education Awards are open to all publicly funded schools, including secondary, primary, nursery and special schools. There are also categories to recognise and reward the dedication of teachers, head-teachers and support staff across the country.   

Nominations are currently being invited from across all 17 categories including Teacher of the Year, Global Citizenship, Literacy and Numeracy across Learning and Sustainable Schools.
