What is peace to you? Competition

This year, the WCIA (Welsh Centre for International Affairs) are celebrating two big anniversaries – the 40th of the WCIA and the 75th of the Temple of Peace, our home in Cardiff.

To mark these occasions, they’re running a competition:

What Is Peace to You?

Here’s the details:

Enter our Peace75 competition by telling or showing us what peace means to you in 75 words or 75 seconds. Entries can be words, poetry, a video, song, voice recording or any other format, in either Welsh or English. Just download our entry form below and send the form, with your entry, to peace75@wcia.org.uk or Peace75, Temple of Peace, Cathays Park, Cardiff, CF10 3AP.

As well as prizes for the best answers, a selection of the entries will be exhibited in The Temple of Peace as part of the Peace75 Festival on November 23rd, 2013. As well as an overall winner, there will be prizes in age categories and for runners up. Watch this space to find out what the prizes will be. We’re looking for entries that are original, inspiring, thought-provoking and creative. Entries will be judged by a panel including acclaimed Welsh Poet, Mererid Hopwood alongside WCIA staff and members.

MAT Book Club- end of year competition

As the end of term approaches, we’re running a competition for all students in year 7-9 who have participated in Book Club this year. There are 3 options for how you can enter:

1. Write a review of the book you’ve just read OR your favourite book from the book club this year. In your review, talk about how you found reading the book (easy – difficult), whether it was the sort of book you usually like to read, whether you would try another book by the same author. What did you enjoy about the story or characters? Was the book predictable? What age range do you think the book is suitable for? Give it a star rating, 5 stars being the best.
2. Choose a book you have read that is NOT on the MAT reading list, and write about why you think it should be put on the list. Give lots of reasons why it would be good for other students to read it, and how it would stretch and challenge them. Make sure if you do this, you do choose a suitable book!
3. Choose your favourite part of the story and rewrite it yourself. Be as creative as you can!

Closing date: 15th July.
Please email entries to Mrs Toovey.
