What is so unique and special about this project? Young people up and down the UK are involved in charity projects. The large majority of this activity is devoted to raising money for, and raising awareness about, the chosen charity's aims. This is fantastic!
Each partner around the world is treating the "contest" differently. Some partners are making a big thing of the competitive element between school entries. We are not.
In the UK, after long discussions with schools, teachers and some children - we have established the following guiding principles:
- The purpose of each school entry is ultimately to inspire others to become part of the Design for Change movement around the world.
- All schools or groups taking part will receive a Design for Change certificate
- Once all school projects have been submitted, individual projects will be recognised - not as winners - but as examples of excellence.
