The Royal Television Society Educational Television Awards recognise the best in audiovisual support for learning.

It's a fantastic tribute to everyone's dedication, hard work and creative energy
Helen Shreeve, Editor, School Report

In their citation, the judges said:

School Report is "…an innovative educational resource that enables young people to explore news and media production by making and broadcasting news for themselves. [It] gives both teachers and pupils the tools to engage at a variety of levels, creating an excellent resource for the classroom."

BBC News School Report Editor Helen Shreeve was thrilled with the award and was pleased that it recognises the hard work that everyone has put into the project.

"I am very proud of what all the pupils and teachers have achieved working together with the BBC and other project partners. School Report has been running for only three years yet this is our 5th nomination for a national award [Children's' BAFTA 2007 and 2008; RTS Journalism 2008; RTS Education 2008 and 2009]. It's a fantastic tribute to everyone's dedication, hard work and creative energy."
