Entries for human rights competition now open
ENTRIES are now being accepted for a competition that promotes equality and human rights.
The Grampian Regional Equality Council (GREC) Anne Frank Awards 2018 is open to all primary and secondary-school aged pupils across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray, and is one of the remaining initiatives allowing schools to commend the bravery of the young Jewish girl during World War 2. It encourages school communities to showcase their activities in the areas of equality, diversity and human rights, with this year’s entries opened to coincide with national anti-bullying week, which runs until Friday.
Schools can take part in multiple different ways, such as pupils getting involved in the celebration of events and anniversaries surrounding saluting the bravery and courage that Anne Frank showed during her persecution. Pupils can also produce artwork, poetry, drama, short films, Powerpoint presentations, comic strips and songs for the awards.
All entrants will be invited to a ceremony in June, and will be awarded certificates. They will also have the chance to present their work to their peers.
