The Carson Awards are an exciting opportunity for young people to express themselves creatively under the theme ‘What Integrated Education Means to Me’.
The Carson Awards are open for applications – please read the full Carson-Guidelines-2017-2018 before applying for a Carson Bursary or entering for a Carson Prize.
The Awards have two elements – Carson Bursaries and Carson Prize
CARSON BURSARIES – CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATION 01 DECEMBER 2017
Open to Year 11, 12, 13 and 14 students at integrated colleges and, if applicable, collaborative partners. Bursaries provide resources to carry out and complete a creative project under the theme ‘What Integrated Education Means to Me’. Note the theme title has changed. Bursaries are awarded up to £1,000.
CARSON PRIZE – CLOSING DATE 25 MAY 2018
Open to all students of integrated primary and second level schools and, if applicable, collaborative partners. Completed creative projects, under the theme ‘What Integrated Education Means to Me’, may be entered for The Carson Prize. For example, pupils at schools may wish to enter a poem, song or piece of artwork they have already created or which does not require any financial assistance. These entries will be judged under key stage categories and winners will receive £500 for their school together with a school trophy. All those who take part will receive a certificate.
