The Parish Council has been considering how Barnt Green can come together, as a community, to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The war affected not only those who fought but also those who were left behind. Its impact was profound and touched all areas of life. We hope that our Centenary Competition will inspire you to write, draw, paint, compose music, arrange flowers or cook. Your entries should simply seek to evoke the spirit of the age. Near the date of the centenary, the Council will seek to display the entries (well, at least the non-perishable ones!) so that the whole community can commemorate the event appropriately.
The Centenary Competition
Entries must have a First World War theme and entrants must either live or work within the Parish or attend a school, church, society or club located in Barnt Green.
More than one piece of work may be submitted for consideration.
Family or group (two or more people) entries are permitted.
Entries will be judged within the following three age groups:
(a) up to 11 years;
(b) from 12 to 16 years;
(c) over 17 years.
The closing date for entries is 12.00 noon on 25 June 2014.
Because of the perishable nature of floral and food submissions, entries will be judged that afternoon.
The Parish Council will award one £25 gift voucher and two £20 gift vouchers for the best entries in each category.
