Looking for a rainy day activity to do over winter? Then check out this competition from The Romani Cultural & Arts Company!

The Romani Cultural & Arts Company is running a drawing competition in celebration of Gypsy, Roma & Traveller (GRT) History Month 2017. It is open to all children aged 5 to 11 in Wales.

To enter they must design and draw a bandana scarf and post it in. There are two age categories:

  • Key Stage 1: That’s years 1 and 2, so ages 5 to 7.
  • Key Stage 2: That’s years 3, 4, 5 and 6, so ages 7 to 11.

While most of the entries are expected to come from schools, the competition is open to entries outside of school time and to those that are home-schooled.

Wales is a beacon of excellence in the promotion of equality of opportunity for all and for inclusive practices across services. Join us in 2017 for a celebration of this, Gypsy, Roma & Traveller (GRT) History Month 2017 and more.

During June 2017, throughout Wales, there will be a variety of events taking place to celebrate the rich culture and heritage of Gypsy, Roma & Traveller communities. There will be exhibitions, performances and workshops accessible to all sectors of the community, with some key events taking place in North Wales and South Wales.

You now have the opportunity to participate in our ‘Design-a-Bandana’ competition, which is open to all Primary schools in Wales and culminates in a Gala event in June 2017. The competition supports the National Literacy & Numeracy Framework and is open to all children with two entry categories available: Key Stage 1 entries and Key Stage 2 entries. This is the perfect way to celebrate big themes such as diversity and equality as well as an opportunity to explore history and culture in an exciting way. Be inclusive, be included, get involved!

All participating schools will receive a ‘thank you’ letter and certificate of participation. Winning designs will be produced as a bandana for distribution by the Romani Cultural and Arts Company throughout 2017. Prizes for winners will be presented in June 2017.
