Andy has kindly given me permission to tell you all about Shine Week, the national youth talent programme.

Shine aims to celebrate the talent in every child and young person.

Last year, more than 2,500 schools and youth organisations joined in, representing over a million young people. Shine featured in the national press and on national TV every day of the week as well as in regional broadcast and print media. Shine 09 is expected to generate even more publicity.

Last year’s Shine was supported by many high-profile celebrities including singer Alesha Dixon, Peter Jones CBE and TV presenter Konnie Huq. Organisations such as the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Southbank Centre in London also joined in.

Shine 09 will run from 6th-10th July and registration is now open. Teachers can sign up today to get their school involved and start planning.

Registering at http://www.shineweek.co.uk/ will give you ideas for your events, access to free resources (a creative kit of posters, which you can tailor to suit your Shine events, certificates and stickers), free downloads and free web space to help you organise and promote some really memorable events.

Once registered, you and the young people involved can upload web content in word, sound, movie or picture files. You will also get tips on how you can promote your Shine event, blog your thoughts and invite others to join the Shine network.

Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
