The happiest, most inspiring pupils in the UK are often overlooked if they don’t excel in exams. But now that is all about to change thanks to the Happiest Pupil Award in the National Happiness Awards, which is giving a voice to the unsung classroom heroes who brighten up their schools with their positivity and laughter.
Parents and teachers are invited to join in the search and nominate children they know who make a real difference to their schools through positivity and happiness.
Every school has children who defy the odds, overcome adversity, inspire others and excel with their personalities, determination and resilience. The National Happiness Awards aims to identify these and celebrate them. The awards also include categories for Happiest School and Happiest School Person.
Increasingly schools are focusing on the importance of happiness and wellbeing, particularly given the rise of mental health problems affecting young people.
Nominations for the all National Happiness Awards categories are open, however, time is running out as the deadline is October 19th.
Last year’s winner Callum Carr from Luton said, “Winning was the best day of my life.”
