Great idea! We do it every year and now combine it with Art and a few musicians add atmosphere. We pick a night governors are meeting. Head pays for wine and nibbles. Have various categories to vote on Best Designer, Best Craftsperson, Best Technologist, Best Coursework folder etc. Parents, kids, staff and governors all vote. Get press in to take photos. At School Awards evening special awards are awarded (better than a book token). We have made own trophies (polished propeller, cam shaft, large cogs and gears all on turned wooden bases). Leave up exhibition for couple of days and take each D&T class in. A lot of work, well worth the effort. Usual comments ?did the kids make these?, ?I didn?t realise?..?, ?not like this when I was at school?. Next time I wanted extra funding governors could see why, ? if I was to continue making that stunning work?. All good PR plus the kids love the idea of our own ?Design Awards?
