2023 LEAD Award Winners & Commendations
Judges were selected from the 27 nominations received. These nominations were all from excellent potential judges; and selection was based on a range of factors including: location, gender, experience (at least one “new” judge is allocated to each panel, whilst the Panel Chair has previous LEA Awards judging experience) and the individual’s professional experience. Six panels, with three judges each, were allocated to judge the entries, including the overall judging panel which selects the overall winner of the awards.
