First World War project nominated for national award

We are delighted to announce that York ISSP’s Legacy 110 Project, in which Millthorpe students Angus and Kirstin were key participants, has been nominated by the Legacy 110 committee to receive a national award. The First World War Commemoration Awards recognise and celebrate the huge effort made throughout the UK by individuals and groups to commemorate the First World War and give something back to their communities.

York ISSP has been nominated under the ‘Schools and Young People’ category following their presentation at The Minster and their work on an exhibition in the Community Room at York Castle Museum. We will find out in the next few weeks if we have been shortlisted and if so, an interview panel in London will follow. We will keep you updated.

The exhibition is on display until October so please do take the opportunity to go and see the outstanding work that young people across the city have produced to mark the centenary of the First World War.
