Children’s Voice Competition Exhibition
The world is going through very challenging times! Climate change, Brexit, the Covid-19 pandemic, racism and the refugee crisis are just a few of the issues we hear about every day. But there are also lots of exciting innovations and opportunities which make it possible to imagine a brighter future.
Every couple of years, the Young Academy of Scotland sets out five Grand Challenges to help us focus the work we do, building a future for everyone that is healthier, smarter, more equal and sustainable. Following up on YAS’s film Our Future Scotland (2018), we held a competition to encourage children to share their vision for the future. We want young people to help us decide what our next Grand Challenge will be!
We invited children aged 8 – 14 to capture their vision digitally by using any technique and media (drawing, writing, collage, photography, etc). Judged by a panel of Young Academy members, some of the outstanding entries are presented in this online exhibition featuring the stimulating creativity and fantastic problem-solving minds of young people.
The YAS Children’s Voice competition prizes were generously sponsored by CMS Scotland.
