It's going to be a super ceremony and a chance for those who 'don't get out much' to let their hair down and party all night. I'm so chuffed to have been asked to be a judge at these awards - this whole community of special people (who don't want to be called special) have meant a lot to me over the last few years and I will be delighted to see many recognised for their hard work. From those who write the big, viral posts, to those who cautiously post about special needs once in a while because they don't want it to take over their lives, everyone is important and appreciated.
Tickets for the event are available for anyone to buy and include entry to the awards, drinks reception, the Awards ceremony, a 3 course meal and after dinner entertainment. Parent, carers and nominee tickets also include entry to a blogging workshop earlier that day.
The categories for nominating are:
The Truth about SEND (sharing the reality of life with SEND)
Newcomer (less than 12 months old)
Campaigning for Change
Promoting Positive Perception
SEND with a side dish of Humour
Practical Support for Families (for an organisation, network or group offering support to families - find out more about BRAs here)
The deadline for getting your votes in is this Friday 25th November at midnight.
If you're unsure of who to vote for, there's a great SEND list here which details lots of the bloggers - if your name isn't on it and you'd like it to be, please do get in touch.
To all those lovely people who have already voted, please give yourselves a big pat on the back and a huge thank you from us.
p.s. the photo is a tongue-in-cheek effort for a lovely guy who I know will have had loads of votes already...
