The Helen Foundation Award
Best Endeavour in the Arts’ – School awards
The charity provides The Helen Foundation Award for “Best Endeavour in the Arts” to every school in Teignbridge that would like one for primary and secondary aged young people. Highly valued by its recipients, the Award is presented annually by each school following its own judgments as to which young person has consistently tried hardest to achieve their aims in a field of the arts, that may include performing and visual arts, media arts, design arts or any combination of these.
The prize is a glass plaque mounted on a specially-made hardwood base designed for the young person’s name to be engraved upon. This perpetual Award stays in the school and the young person keeps a small replica and also receives a certificate.
