ChildLine founder Dame Esther Rantzen is proud to be Brand Ambassador for
The Community Education Awards.
Dame Esther has campaigned tirelessly for children's rights for more than 30 years. Having first found fame as the presenter of That's Life! - the BBC's long-running consumer programme - she went on to set up ChildLine, the first 24-hour confidential helpline for children.
After it was merged with the NSPCC she went on to serve as the charity's trustee and continues to work for child welfare.
"If the awards can build bridges between the generations and between the school and community, it's in everyone's interest, and these awards are obviously encouraging those projects" Dame Esther Rantzen DBE.
The awards are an annual celebration of schools' efforts to help children and young people become positive community members. The awards are designed to highlight and reward the most effective projects being delivered in schools and within their local community.
If you have a school project which encourages children to grow into socially conscious young people, then you need to tell us by entering one of our prestigious awards.
