We were really excited to share with you the fact that we were nominated for two prestigious awards…. the Innovation Category for our super duper pen racer and local hero map, a fun and interactive way to download lots of heritage facts whilst racing a pen around a track, avoiding penalty points!! This game has proved invaluable at community events, in schools and to promote local hero activities. Imagine 8 players, a timer, race against your competitors… shouting out facts as you go!!
We were so excited to be part of the line up!
We were also lucky enough to also be nominated for the Engaging Young People Award – this was for our work with young people; they were actively encouraged to help produce a heritage film about Coalville in North West Leicestershire. The film gave young people the chance to research local heritage sites, script writing, filming and editing. Whilst the funding we hoped to secure with the film failed to materialise this time, we were so very proud when it was selected as one way which we use to engage with young people.
