PSE - All's fair with football

9th October 2009 at 01:00

Show Racism the Red Card, the anti-racism charity which uses professional footballers to get across its message, launched its 2010 creative competition at the Scottish Learning Festival in Glasgow last month, with the support of ex-Scotland manager and former headteacher Craig Brown.

The Show Racism the Red Card competition is open to all people from P1- S6.

Billy Singh, campaign manager for the charity, said: "After a break in 2009 to run an evaluation of the project, our annual competition is back and bigger than ever for 2010, with new categories for further education colleges and special schools. There is a wealth of creative talent out there and we want to use it to show that Scotland is a fair and inclusive society."

The entrants' creative work, which does not need to have a football focus, should reflect why racism has no place in Scotland. Creative work could include artwork, poetry, short storycreative writing, music composition, multimedia presentation, dancedrama, research project or T-shirt design.

For further information on the competition and to register interest, visit and fill in the online registration form by November 27. Closing date for entries is January 29.
