2016 Awards

The 2016 Awards marked the final ceremony as 'Somerset Anne Frank Awards'. After this, we took some time to focus on a rebrand to 'Somerset Anne Frank Youth Awards', as well as transitioning into becoming a registered Chairty. This time-frame was then delayed again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in a successful relaunch in 2021.

The annual Somerset Anne Frank Awards ceremony was held at Millfield School on Wednesday 27th April. Now in its sixth successful year, the awards recognise the personal strengths and achievements of young people across Somerset.

The individual winner was Kira Lewis from Castle School and LGBTEA from Bridgwater College won the group award. A glass trophy which represents the windows of Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and copies of the Anne Frank diary were presented by Mrs Christine Lawrence Chair of Somerset County Council and Mr Paul Heim. The winners and highly commended students also had the opportunity to visit Anne Frank’s house in Amsterdam and the National Holocaust centre in Nottingham in July 2016.

The guest speaker was Mr Paul Heim who gave a moving and captivating speech about “Life under the Nazis” in Vienna in the 1930s.
