Youth hate crime competition
The West Oxfordshire Community Safety Partnership has launched a competition for young people to highlight issues around hate crime.
To take part you will need to be between 11 and 16 years old. The competition is to create a piece of work to inspire and educate about the issues facing people who suffer hate crime and discrimination. The competition themes are:
- impact of hate crime
- experiencing hate crime
- reporting hate crime
- accessing support
More information on hate crime is available from the Report It website.
The prizes are:
- 1st place, £75 voucher
- 2nd place, £50 voucher
- 3rd place, £25 voucher
The type of voucher can be chosen by winning entrants, but we are asking for winners to think about supporting local businesses.
We will only provide vouchers for organisations that provide age appropriate goods.
How to enter
Step 1 Parents complete Registration document
Step 2 child or parent submits entry by email to HateCrime.Comp@westoxon.gov.uk with the childrens names and parents names in the main text of the email

- film or video (animation, drama or documentary, no longer than 90 seconds)

What happens next
Competition entries will be shortlisted by us and reviewed to make sure the content is not offensive, discriminatory and does not appropriate from other cultures.
Shortlisted Entries will be judged by a panel, including other young people and members of the Community Safety Partnership.
We will contact parents of the top three entries to ensure that they consent and we can use the artwork or media in part of a Hate Crime Campaign we will be running on Social Media.
We may contact parents of the top three entries to see if they would be interested in hearing from news agencies should they be interested in the campaign, competition and entries. We will be running a week long social media campaign using facebook and twitter on Hate Crime. Winning entries will be included in this campaign.
