Aspiration Awards Terms and Conditions

We believe that there is more than one definition of success and this doesn’t just mean grades and achievement rates. And that’s what our Aspiration Awards are all about. Do you know someone who is exceeding expectations, overcoming obstacles to achieve the unexpected or coming up with new and innovative ways to achieve their goals? Well, we want to hear from you!
