Theme: “Impact of Conflict on Communities”
For the 2019/20 academic year, the Never Such Innocence competition will be bigger than ever! We have expanded our focus to include all conflicts throughout history and today, and have broadened the age range to 9-18. We are also delighted to open a new speechwriting category!
This year’s theme is ‘The Impact of Conflict on Communities’ – We invite young people all across the world to write a poem, speech, or song, or create a piece of art reflecting on how a conflict has or is affecting a community. This conflict could be past or present; international, national or local. We also have two bonus categories, ‘75’ and ‘A Fight for Freedom’, with special prizes – see below for more information!
We invite young people to have a strong and powerful voice to influence the world’s decision makers. Visit our resource and Top Tips pages to gain inspiration or enter the competition!
