🌟It’s finally here… the BAPS nominations are now open for 2019!🌟
So what are the BAPS?
They stand for Bloody Awesome Parents (great title 😉) and are awards that recognise writing about SEND. They also aim to highlight those who are making a difference and it is also a place where campaigning about improving the lives for those with SEND is celebrated too.
Last year I got to the finals and it was an amazing experience – being in a room full of so many heartbreaking stories but writers who carry on regardless, striving for change and understanding.
I also got to stand next to Gethin Jones in a picture (where my hand *accidentally* managed to touch his very nice buttocks) – now who wouldn’t want to do that again?!
For anyone who wants to read about the last event, the link can be found here:
It would be great to get PDA talked about once again and there are some great blogs out there which I know I will be nominating – a fairly recent list can be found here by Notes on PDA.
This year, there is also a category for a Bloody Awesome Parent, but for someone who is not a blogger. It could be someone who runs a support group or makes a difference to your life – there are way too many people I want to put in that category!
If anyone does want to nominate this blog then I would be most grateful – although I’ll understand if not as I feel lucky to have been a finalist twice this year already (without the support received by all of you then that wouldn’t have been possible 😍).
For those who may wish to nominate then my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org is probably the only info you need to do it.
To enter nominations for any of the categories here is a quick link to the form.
I wish all of the other writers I know, who I have met in person or maybe online, lots of luck ahead too.
Anyone who gets through will be a celebration in my eyes 💕🍾🥂
