Certitude/BRIT School community partnership award winner is announced
Last month we revealed the shortlist of the students who had been nominated for our first-ever ‘Making a Difference Award, presented to a student for their dedication and commitment to community involvement. We’re pleased to announce that a winner has been chosen!
At a ceremony held at the BRIT School on Thursday 9th July, Certitude, together with a parent of someone we have supported, presented the award to Keziah Horgan. Nadeem Islaam and Adam Filipe were highly commended Runners Up.
Keziah really impressed the judges with her dedication to supporting others in her community. From organising a music event which raised over £1000 for ‘The Oxford Children’s Hospital’, to volunteering as a classroom assistant at ‘Springfield School’ for young people with special needs and disabilities, she showed a real commitment to community involvement. Keziah’s ambition is to set up her own community theatre school delivering drama therapy workshops.
Upon receiving the award, Keziah said: “It is amazing that an award which celebrates a group of young people such as the nominees for this award exists. The partnership The BRIT School and Certitude have created is so worthwhile, and one I think is extremely important in order to build stronger communities using the arts. I hope to use this award and Certitude’s generous donation to continue my work within the community, and to encourage more people to work together to build a better society. Thank you once again to Certitude for this incredible recognition.”
Many congratulations to all the nominees, it was a tricky decision to make as all were truly inspirational in their dedication to supporting others and creating positive change within their communities.
