Roar! for Diversity Competition

Football and cricket have joined forces for this competition which empowers Key Stage 2 pupils to celebrate diversity in teams.

This competition is now closed. Thank you to all those who entered. In March 2020, we'll be in touch with all schools that have entered to let them know if they are one of the winners.

We are proud to launch our Roar! for Diversity competition, in partnership with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), to empower pupils to ‘Roar!’ for Diversity and celebrate the importance of diversity in teams.

For this competition, pupils need to work together to create an advert to celebrate diversity in teams and show others just how important it is. Pupils’ adverts can be as creative as they like – they may wish to do a poster, a poem, an artwork, a storyboard for a short film or any other idea they choose!

Download our supporting resources for the chance to win a football and cricket goodies pack and to introduce the competition to Key Stage 2 pupils. By entering the competition, pupils could win some unforgettable prizes, including working with designers to bring their advert to life and tickets to a match!

Watch the film above to find out more about the competition and what your pupils need to do to enter.
