Schoolchildren in Surrey, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London have just two weeks left to submit entries for ACS International Schools’ Global Citizens Awards and be in with a chance of winning £1000 for themselves and their respective schools. To enter, students are asked to describe in no more than 500 words how they are supporting a cause, challenge or charity they are championing. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges including the Heads at ACS International Schools’ three UK schools at Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon. The Awards, now in their second year, are designed to recognise, encourage and reward young people across the regions who are making a difference in their local area and to the environment around the world. Entries can be submitted until midnight on 22nd February 2019 via the schools’ website acs-schools.com/award Izzy Hodzic, one of last year’s winning students from ACS International Schools, commented: “Being a winner of an ACS Global Citizens Award allowed me to use the money for good. I split the winnings and put it into mine and my brother’s university funds because I believe that education is the most important thing to spend money on. “At the moment, I am working with charities to ensure that people less fortunate than me also have opportunities and a good education. This award is something that I am extremely proud to have received, and I am glad that other students will also have the opportunity to be rewarded for their hard work.” Simon Leyshon, Head of School at ACS Cobham, commented: “The Global Citizens Awards are a great opportunity to reward the inspiring work of students in our area who have dedicated their time to support charities and initiatives both locally and internationally.” ACS International Schools also offers bursaries to children aged 11 , 13 and 16 at its three UK campuses in Cobham, Egham and Hillingdon. The bursaries are offered to students who will benefit most from an ACS education, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum, but might not otherwise be able to attend the school. The financial awards range from ten per cent to 100 per cent of the schools’ fees, with all bursaries awarded on a means-tested basis and dependent on the student’s individual circumstance.
