Inspiring local young talent at a challenging time

In these rather strange and unprecedented times, we realise that you are one of a whole generation of young people whose world has literally stopped.

Many of you were about to do your exams, but have now been left in limbo; all your hard work and effort has just halted and your time in school has been abruptly cut short. Sadly, we can’t change this, but what we can do is to try and make you feel valued, inspired and offer you the opportunity to show your talent and share your ideas.

Innovate, create, write...

The Cotswold Challenge initiative is solely for 15-19 year olds in school years 11, 12 and 13, and has been broken into three categories, with four prizes to be awarded in each category.

The Art and Design Challenge

Express your artistic talents in any medium: fine art, graphic design, sculpture, print-making, illustration, photography ... show us your flair.

The Creative Writing Challenge

We are looking for short stories/plays/scripts/poems that could be inspiring, reflective of what’s happening in the world today or thoughts about the future, in any genre.

The Innovation and Entrepreneurial Thinking Challenge

Do you have a great idea for a product, service or campaign that would benefit our world? Do you have views on how we can better the planet or our environment or our way of life? Tell us more!

Deadline for all entries: 9pm on 1st June 2020

good luck!
