It all starts here...!

Enter Shine 2019

Register today!

So we can get to know you, your plans and your project, we ask that a project leader, usually a teacher or Head of Department, drops us an email at

Once that is in hand we will quickly acknowledge receipt and your Shine journey will begin.

We will keep you fully up-to-date with what is happening as well as providing support material you might need to produce the best possible edition of your magazine, newsletter, podcast or website.


Then – enter the competition…

When you are registered and your project is complete, download the entry form, which we will be sending out in January 2019, and carefully fill it out.

The entry form sits alongside your finished project on the judging days and is your ‘voice in the room’.

A strong entry form means the Shine judges understand what your plans were at the outset, the challenges you faced along the way and why you are so proud of the finished project. It also means you can give a shout-out to the team (including your teachers!) who worked so hard to make it all possible.

Good luck!
