As always we were overwhelmed with the response to the awards which showcase and celebrate the very best students, teachers, schools and employees in the area and recognise the achievements that schools and pupils make within the education sector on a daily basis.
The awards night will be held at Nelson and Colne College next Wednesday ( June 29th) at 6.30pm.
Sponsored by Nelson and Colne College, Accrington and Rossendale College and Burnley College there are 12 categories.
The awards will be presented by Burnley Express editor John Deehan who said: "It goes without saying the last two years have truly been like no other.
"But in the most trying of circumstances, our schools and colleges have risen to the many unprecedented challenges put before them.
"Pupils, teachers, and all the unsung heroes behind the scenes have continued to go above and beyond during a truly unsettling period of disruption.
"These awards, now in their 11th year, recognise the outstanding efforts and achievements of all those involved, and the Burnley Express is honoured to be involved.
"Good luck to all the finalists."
