Good Guys awards: Do you know a little super hero?

EVERY day, children around Australia are showing super hero qualities such as courage, bravery, perseverance, determination, compassion and kindness in their daily life.

In this spirit, The Good Guys has launched a national awards program to recognise and celebrate Australia's super kids and super schools.

In its inaugural year, The Good Guys Super Kid Awards program will recognise children aged 6 - 12 who have demonstrated their inner super hero strengths and capabilities, and will honour children whose super hero qualities have helped them to make a difference in their community by doing good.

The awards will also acknowledge primary schools that have made an outstanding contribution to improving the wellbeing of children by implementing or executing programs that generate long term benefits.

The winners of the two Super Kid Award categories will each receive $10,000 to support their educational growth and development, while the winner of the Super School Award category will receive $10,000 to further develop their innovative program.

Samsung tablets will also be awarded to 100 finalists in each of the two Super Kid Award categories.

As part of its commitment to helping improve the physical and mental wellbeing of children, The Good Guys launched a Super Hero Academy in September last year, which aims to empower children to discover their inner strengths and capabilities by taking on challenges in a fun and safe environment.

After watching more than 4,000 Super Hero cadets pass through 120 of the Super Hero Academy workshops, The Good Guys was inspired by the many unsung little super heroes and The Good Guys Super Kid Awards presents the opportunity to celebrate and recognise the good they do.

Nominations will be reviewed by an honorary selection panel including Andrew Muir, Chairman of The Good Guys and board member of The Good Foundation, as well as three independent panel members.
Full details can be found at www.superheroacademy.net.au. Nominations open 15 February 2016!
