From 1st November, Britain’s parents (and indeed, anyone else) can vote for the best kids’ activities in the UK.
Every vote cast in November will see 5p donated to the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.
The What’Ã‚â€™s On 4 Little Ones 2008 awards, sponsored by pioneering food company Organix, are now in their second year.
This year, the awards are bigger than ever, covering 20 different categories ranging from Best Antenatal Class to Best Messy Play Class.
The awards are divided into three categories: national, for activities that are available in more than one area of the UK; local, for activities that are based in one area of the UK, and a set of special awards.
Parents can vote online for the national awards. The other awards are being judged by an independent panel, which includes broadcaster, author and mother-of-two Alice Beer. All the winners will be announced in March 2008.
The awards also include the Organix Make A Difference Food Award, which
will go to any class or activity that has made a difference by introducing
healthy food choices.
WhatÃ‚â€™’s On 4 Little Ones co-founder Sam Willoughby said, “Ã‚â€œWe wanted to give parents a chance to say thank you to the many class teachers and activity organisers across the UK. We’ve gained such enjoyment from reading the nominations – so often activities provide a lifeline to parentsÃ‚â€.”
There have already been more than 300 nominations for the awards, and
thereÃ‚â€™s still time to nominate your favourite local activity before the
closing date of October 31 2007.
