UK schools are being invited to join the fight against racism, prejudice and hate by taking part in the annual Arts and Minds competition.

The competition encourages pupils from primary, special and secondary schools to create pieces of writing and art to deliver messages of equality and cultural diversity. It is run by the NASUWT and is supported by a range of organisations, including the Anne Frank Trust UK and SecEd.

The competition is an opportunity to discuss and explore diversity and community cohesion with students, using art and creative writing. Teachers have incorporated the competition into lessons across the curriculum, including history, humanities, literacy, art and citizenship, as well as school projects. Students can also enter the Anne Frank Poetry Award by submitting poems inspired by the life and writing of Anne Frank.

Prizes will be awarded to the best entries from across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales in primary, secondary and special school categories. Television presenter Gok Wan will choose the overall winner.

The 2018 overall winner Grace Numfor, from Ercall Wood Technology College in Telford, is pictured above with her artwork Why Us? This year’s closing date for entries is July 5 and the final ceremony will take place in London on October 8.
