#Osborne wins The Harrison Cup at the Shine School Media Awards 2018

‘#Osborne’, the schools magazine created by the pupils for the pupils, has won the National Shine School Media Award’s ‘Harrison Cup’. The Shine awards celebrate achievement and brilliance by young people in the area of media. We are the only school to have won this top prize twice! What an honour!

Two pupils who write for the magazine went to London on Monday to the award ceremony that was held at Stationer’s Hall near St Paul’s Cathedral. The magazine was nominated for an award for ‘Best Magazine Cover’ which was designed by Jacob Bain, Max Andrew and Ella Parker (Key Stage 4).  We didn’t win, but were delighted to be nominated. It was the last award – the big prize – that Osborne School were awarded the cup. We all jumped to our feet and the audience went wild when Cody took to the stage to collect the trophy and cup.

The Harrison Cup was awarded to the school by the industry-expert judges who described the magazine as “fresh, unique and full of pizzazz”. The magazine has a team of writers that prepare an issue every term. Cody Cooper, who collected the award with his team member James Morgan said “It’s incredible. I can’t believe it. My dreams have come true”.

We would like to thank the judges and the amazing team at the Shine School Media Awards (especially Anneliese Cooper-Blake and Annie Hotton) for recognising the joy making this magazine means to our young people.
