Hate Crime Awareness Week Competition Theme

Posted on: 08/10/2020 in Community , Resources , Training , COVID-19 Updates
Camden National Hate Crime Awareness Week (10-17 October) aims to celebrate the diverse people of Camden and our strength when we work together and support each other. We’d love children and young people who live or study in Camden to contribute to this campaign through a competition with two age categories: 5 – 11 and 12 – 21. The winners will have their work published in our libraries and will receive a £25 voucher. Two runners-up will also receive £10 vouchers.

Hate crime remains an issue across our borough and nationally. In Camden we are working hard to ensure that everyone knows how to recognise and report hate crime. We want everyone to stand up together against hateful, divisive behaviour in our borough. Work is taking place across Camden Council and the wider Camden community to promote community cohesion and safety.

We are looking for short written pieces (under 900 words) of fiction or non-fiction, poems (under 600 words and under 45 lines long) or artwork of any medium, as long as it can be reproduced as a single image within a printed page. The theme is your vision of a safe, strong and equal Camden for everyone who lives, works and studies here. You will need the permission from a parent or guardian to enter. Entry is completely free!

Please send your entries to Prevent@camden.gov.uk with your name and age category. We’re accepting entries now and the closing date is the 31st October 2020, so go get creative!
