Thank you to all who took part this week. There were some very inspirational ideas for the BNC, which makes us think we should have you all working on our team! Coincidentally, our two winners come from Ormiston Academies Trust schools this week...
Our first winner is free_iceberg of Ormiston Sudbury Academy, who came up with several reasons why it is important we learn about the impact of protesting, especially at a time when it is playing such a role in world events.
Our second winner is insightful_orca of Ormiston Bushfield Academy, who gave an impassioned defence of the need for more awareness about mental health, and gave good reasons for its inclusion on within the BNC.
This week we have a very special competition. There's two short steps
To enter, all you need to do is first take the "End of Year Survey"...
...and then below, tell us what area of news you would cover if YOU were in charge of designing a BNC Issue.
The Issues already covered this year have been: Hong Kong, Space Exploration, Politicians and Power, The NHS, Extreme Weather, and the Arts. The last 3 have all had links to the impact of the coronavirus, too.
You might want to choose something you've seen on the news recently, or you might want to think of a future event that you know will make news, or maybe something that is always happening that you think children should learn about.
Remember to give your reasoning - this is what we'll judge entries on!
The competition closes on 3 July at 10.30am. Good luck! You must take the survey first in order to be in with a chance of winning - we'll be checking the form!
