York ISSP National Award Nomination!

We are delighted to announce that York ISSP’s Legacy 110 Project has been nominated by the Legacy 110 committee to receive a national award. The First World War Commemoration Awards recognise and celebrate the huge effort made throughout the UK by individuals and groups to commemorate World War One and give something back to their communities.

This all started with the IOE Battlefields visit in March 2015 when students and staff from the Partnership schools were motivated to do some follow up work and tell the wider community about their work. York ISSP has been nominated under the “Schools and Young People” category following their commemoration at The Minster and their work on an exhibition which is now in the Community Room at York Castle Museum.

We will find out in the next few weeks if we have been shortlisted and if so, an interview panel in London will follow. We will keep you updated.

The exhibition ‘1916: It’s more than the Somme’ is on display at The Castle Museum in York until October so please do take the opportunity to go and see the outstanding work that young people across the city have produced to mark the centenary of the Great War.
