CARSON PRIZE – CLOSING DATE 26 MAY 2020
This is currently postponed due to the Corona Virus outbreak and the IEF will notify schools as soon as it is possible to reopen this competition.
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.
