BAPS Blogging Awards

Exciting news - next year in May, the first ever BAPS blogging awards ceremony will be held in Birmingham.

BAPS stands for Bloody Awesome Parents awards, and covers all bloggers who are writing about a variety of issues, challenges and achievements in the SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) community. All busy people of course, so it's amazing any of us find time to sit and type in the first place!

I was 'right chuffed' (there's the Northern in me) to be asked to be a judge for these awards; I really care about the whole community and the amazing people in it. I'm sure the whole event will be emotional and heart warming, and a chance for many who don't often let their hair down to relax and be merry.

Even though I'm a judge, I can still be nominated for an award (just in case you were wondering!) but in all honesty I'm not holding my breath - I have no idea what category I'd put myself in, so I won't be disappointed if you don't vote for me.

The categories are:

  • Campaigning for Change
  • Promoting Positive Perception
  • SEND with a side dish of Humour
  • The truth about SEND
  • Newcomer
  • Practical Support for Families

Please do vote for someone in each category; there are so many great bloggers in this community and I know that being put forward for an award would mean so much to them. If you want some ideas, let me know - I've got loads, and have no idea how I'm going to whittle it down....

Good Luck to everyone!
