Sarah Hulme of The Stonehill High School, Leicester, 1st place award in the All Ages & Abilities Multi-Media Category
The Show Racism the Red Card Anti-Racist School Competition runs annually and is one of the highlight's of our calendar. We reported last week on the full list of winners and the judges' tough selection job in each of the eight separate categories.
The All Ages & Abilities Multi-Media Category is for all film and music entries and is one of the hardest to pick winners in. Each year there is an increase in the number of entrants in this category.
This year it was particularly difficult, with some outstanding pieces of work produced. Sarah Hulme who attends The Stonehill High School in Leicester made a brilliant short film and was awarded first place. Sarah's entry entitled 'Earth' is highly original and has a strong anti-racist message.
The Leicester Mercury has written an article about Sarah's success which includes the film in full. You can see it here.
Sarah's teacher, Dean Boonham, ran the competition at The Stonehill High School and he said, "This is an outstanding piece of work and I am thrilled that Sarah's talents have been recognised."This is a national competition and it makes me feel so proud to think that one of our students has come first."
SRtRC will update here about press coverage of other winning entries and we look forward to the Awards Ceremony on May 3rd, when all the winners will receive thier prizes.
