Children across Barbados are being called on to help in the fight against corona virus by using their creative talents.
The National Cultural Foundation is running a digital competition for children between the ages 6 to 17 to create posters, films, short stories and spoken word videos. This virtual opportunity allows school-aged children to create under the broad theme ‘COVID-19 Prevent the Spread’ with prizes ranging from $500 to $1000. This opportunity will keep their minds occupied in this time and educate their like-minded peers along with the general public.
“This pandemic has interrupted our normal weekday routines and many children will find it hard to cope and creativity can be a powerful antidote. Children will have the opportunity to promote positive messages and educate their like-minded peers long with the general public while trying to find some normalcy in their lives and keep their minds occupied while at home,” said NCF CEO, Carol Roberts-Reifer.
Entries will be shared and promoted via NCF’s online platforms. All entries will be uploaded via the digital registration form on the NCF’s Website at www.ncf.bb. Deadline for entries is Monday, May 25th, 2020.
