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.
