‘Best Endeavour in the Arts’ – School awards

The charity provides The Helen Foundation Award for “Best Endeavour in the Arts” to every school in Teignbridge that would like one for primary and secondary aged young people. The prizes are awarded annually by each school following its own judgments as to which young person has consistently tried hardest to achieve their aims in a field of the arts to include performing and visual arts, media arts, design arts or any combination of these.
