External evaluation SRtRC School Competition
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is extending the deadline for this year's National School Competition and we are encouraging all schools to participate in our 20th Anniversary Year.
Schools now have until 18th March 2016 to register for the competition but all final entries must also be submitted by that date.
Full details, including how to register can be found here.
The SRtRC School Competition sees young people from schools throughout England create their own anti-racism messages in a variety of formats and is the largest equalities-themed competition for young people in the country.
One of the few competition stipulations is that young people must have worked with SRtRC resources and activities within an educational setting, but having done so entrants then have the flexibility to get creative with their anti-racism messages.
Open to young people of all ages and abilities, the free-to-enter competition encourages participants to produce anti-racism themed artwork - in any medium; creative writing – including poetry, short stories and newspaper style articles; film and music pieces.
Throughout its history, entrants into the competition have produced truly inspirational work, some of which has gone on to be incorporated into the campaign’s wider awareness-raising activities.
In recent years, the popularity of the multimedia category has grown substantially, with the overall winners for the 2013/14 and 2014/15 competitions producing exceptional short films.
All winners of the competition will be invited to a special Awards Ceremony at a Premier League Stadium, with prizes presented by special guests, including current and former professional footballers.
