Show Racism the Red Card’s Anti-Racism/Anti-Sectarianism Creative Competition is celebrating its’ 11th birthday this year.
The Creative Competition is an exciting highlight of Show Racism the Red Card’s calendar and reaches out to schools all over Scotland.
With almost 1 in 5 schools having participated in the competition, the Creative Competition is getting bigger and better every year. Entries are welcome from both individuals as well as class groups and the closing date for all entries is Friday 30th January 2015.
To enter, students of any age, must develop a piece of creative work that gets across loud and clear the important message that racism and/or sectarianism does not have a place in Scotland. Instead, it should show how Scotland can celebrate its’ diverse and multicultural population.
The creative work is not limited to art work - students can write poems, short stories, songs or create short drama pieces or films and play on their own individual strengths. The best work is pieces that have been carefully considered and really engage in the important anti-racism/anti-sectarianism message. In previous years, winners have done all of the above - so don’t be afraid to think outside the box.
Competition winners will be invited to see their work exhibited at Scotland’s national stadium, Hampden Park in March, will be awarded their prizes and will have the opportunity to meet some famous faces.
