Get involved

Kids Judge Bett returns for the 7th year. This ever-popular student led event, running throughout the week, with final judging by kids on the Friday, is organised by Islington Council

Pupils and parents from Primary and Secondary schools, including SEND and FE students, are invited to get involved in exploring stands, exhibitors and their products to choose their favourites across 10 categories for judging. Many companies say this is the award that really matters!

The results will be announced by the students in a high energy, nail biting finale, live in the Arena at lunchtime on Friday 25 March, where ten very honored companies receive the extremely coveted and delicious chocolate trophies.
