Create work now to have your say in the next phase of the project!

We want to hear the voices of the future use creativity to share their thoughts on conflict. Find out about the ideas behind the new competition here, and have your say on the content of our new resource here.

For the 2019/20 academic year, we will be inviting young people to create poetry, art, speeches, and songs responding to conflict throughout the ages.

Ahead of September 2019, you can submit early entries inspired by this new topic! This work will be entered into the 2019-20 competition, and may also be used in promotion to encourage other young people to take part!

To help inspire these entries, download a lesson plan below, or you can also request a free songwriting workshop.
