The Diana Award, set up in memory of Princess Diana’s belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better, has Prime Minister David Cameron as Patron and the support of the HRH Duke of Cambridge and HRH Prince Harry.

Bessbrook’s 18 year old Anita received the Diana Award for being a Diana Anti-Bullying Champion in her local community.

She was chosen as St. Paul’s High School Anti-Bullying Ambassador due to her work with NIBF, developing her own Twitter campaign and founding her own website.

She has worked tirelessly within the area of anti-bullying, so much so, that her efforts have been locally and nationally recognised. She has spoken on TV, been interviewed on radio and appeared in newspaper articles regarding her work.

Since 1999, the Diana Award has recognised over 42,000 young people who have made a positive difference to the lives of others and their communities.

The Diana Award believe that young people should be: encouraged for their contributions to society, empowered to reach their full potential and they should be engaged in social action as early in life as possible.
