The Citizenship Foundation, through its Go Givers programme, is running a competition to see the best letters that children across the UK can write to the Prime Minister, with suggestions and ideas of what needs to be done to make the UK a more tolerant society.
It is being run in partnership with Learn2Think, leading up to the UN International Day UN International Day of Tolerance on November 16th.
Primary age children don’t have the opportunity to vote, but that doesn’t mean that their views shouldn’t be heard!
We shall be passing the best entries direct to 10 Downing Street, and the winner will feature in The Week Junior, a new current affairs magazine for children between 8 – 14, and receive a year’s free subscription!
The most interesting letters will also be displayed in the gallery in the Kids’ Zone of the Go-Givers website.
