Well Done Rashida!

Rashida Sillah recently took part in the National Literacy Trust's Editor Challenge competition. Last week we received an email to praise Rashida on the quality of her work. The National Literacy Trust received nearly 100 entries, with Rashida's making the final shortlist of ten! 

Network and Competitions Manager, Gemma Niebieszczanski had this to say...

'The judges at both the National Literacy Trust and Immediate Media were impressed with the quality of Rashida’s entry and her original ideas. It was tough choosing just one winner and whilst Rashida narrowly missed out on the prize we wanted them to know that the high standard of her work was recognised by the judges.'
