Cheshire Police Competition!

It’s not too late to take part in our free Cheshire Police, Safer Schools & Young Persons Partnership, Be Aware Challenge. 
A creative media competition in partnership with ucreate ( Year 6 & Year 8 )
The Competition
Cheshire Police – Safer Schools & Young Persons Partnership would like your school to create an empowering 60-second radio commercial to raise awareness to other children to think carefully about keeping themselves and their peers safe.   You can choose from three categories – Healthy relationships , On-line safety (focusing on sexting / sending inappropriate pictures) and Legal Highs ( New psychoactive substances).   
This project is completely free and will provide an exciting creative outlet for your pupils and build on their literacy skills, persuasive writing techniques and communication skills.  Cheshire Crimebeat and Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner have very kindly sponsored this initiative.
What you need to know?
The challenge will officially be launching on September 5th 2016 and running until November 4th 2016 giving your pupils 8 weeks to create and record an encouraging audio commercial.   The project is divided into 2 age groups - key stage 2 year 6 and key stage three year 8.  You can register your school to take part today or wait until you receive an invitation e-mail in September. 
The Prize
The semi-finalists will be invited to Cheshire Police HQ (Winsford) on 29th November to a ucreate Hub day for an opportunity to develop and record their adverts with a radio industry professional and be in with a chance of winning the ultimate prize of having their commercial broadcast on local radio!
