The Helen Foundation Award is presented by schools in Teignbridge to the young person who, in the school’s own judgement, has shown , “Best endeavour in the arts.” Highly valued by the recipients, the Award celebrates the depth of artistic talents in our young people. The Award itself is a beautiful glass plaque mounted on a hardwood base inscribed with the winner’s name. This remains in the schools and the winner receives a certificate and a duplicate glass plaque to keep. Certificates are also presented to two Highly Commended young people each year. Awards and certificates are available free to all schools in Teignbridge.
Recent Award winners include:

Headteacher Neil Swainson presented the Award to Katie during the Governors’ assembly on the final day of the summer term at Christow.
Katie received the Award for her “excellent drawing and artwork throughout the year and indeed her whole time at Christow Community Primary School.”
