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. It has been running now for more than 10 years and during this time students have been creative in the media they have used – including poems, stories, digital artwork, photography and collages.

Teachers have incorporated the competition into lessons across the curriculum, including history, humanities, literacy, art and citizenship, as well as school projects.
