I can now officially announce that I have been chosen as a Runner Up in the Queen’s Young Leader Award for 2017! Out of 3,000 applicants in the UK I have been lucky enough to be chosen as 1 of 5 runners up, for all the work that I am doing with my Let Sign Shine campaign! It is great to see Let Sign Shine’s work recognised for the help and good it can bring to society.
Radio Norwich 99.9 host their Local Hero Awards once a year. This year, on 7th October 2015, Jade was awarded the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’. The award was for Jade’s outstanding achievements so far with the Let Sign Shine campaign. The awards ceremony included a performance by Alesha Dixon!
