Schools Radio Competition

I just found this great website encouraging students who run a school radio. Worth checking out if it's something your school does or is thinking about doing. It would be a great project to work with young people on, if you're into the radio thing!

"SchoolsRadio.com was launched on December 5 2007 by the Secretaries of State the Rt. Hon. Ed Balls and the Rt. Hon. James Purnell; it is an innovative and far reaching school based audio project created by The Vision Charity. Supporting many aspects of the National Curriculum, SchoolsRadio.com is a unique platform which provides a level playing field for children of all abilities to get their voices heard as they explore the powerful and popular medium of radio.

SchoolsRadio.com encourages primary, secondary and sixth form students aged up to 18 to create their own radio broadcasts

with suitable classroom guidance, on subjects and issues that are important to them. Teachers are then encouraged to post the programme onto a responsible social networking website and log the details on our own specially regulated networking site 'SchoolsRadio.com'. This will allow students and schools around the country to share their broadcasts with each other.


Entries are now invited for our second competition: The Sony Award for Schools Radio. Full details are available on the entry form. Please note that the competition entries must be received no later than 15 November 2008."
