Poetry Competition in honour of Disability History Month
Updated: Nov 21, 2022
To coincide with this year's Disability History Month, which runs from the 16th November to the 16th December, we are launching a poetry writing competition for local school children aged between 6 years and 12 years.
Creative writers can craft a poem of any length on the subject of 'Challenge,' the theme of the first of many books that we hope to publish.
The ten best poems from each school will be included in the book which will go on sale in the new year. All proceeds from book sales will go towards our charity which provides for disabled children.
On the theme of 'Challenge' perhaps the children want to write about the challenges they believe that disabled people face - and overcome - either huge challenges or challenges on a day-to-day basis?
Or perhaps they want to write about their own greatest challenge - something they're proud of - or maybe they want to write something about the challenges we face as a country, or globally? Or maybe they want to pen something on sports challenges and competitions? Whatever they choose to write about - it will be fascinating and we look forward to receiving the entries.
Taking part is free of charge and you can send entries marked 'Poetry Competition' to: Jane Holmes, CEO, Building For the Future, 2B High Street, Twyford RG10 9AE or via email to: email@example.com
There will also be an overall winner which will be chosen by a Celebrity Judge.
