Young people Show Racism the Red Card
SQA joined names from the world of Scottish football to recognise the creativity of young people in spreading messages of anti-racism.
They were attending the Show Racism the Red Card Scottish Creative Competition Awards 2019. This is the 15th anniversary of the ceremony, and this year the theme was “Inspirational People from the Anti-Racism Movement”.
Over a thousand entries were received, from children in Primary 1 through to college students. They had each submitted a creative piece which reflected their wish to make Scotland a fair and inclusive society.
SQA attended the ceremony, which took place at Hampden Park, to support the S4-S6 category. Our support forms part of our Responsible Business strategy.
The overall winners in the category were Jordanhill School’s Rachel Keenan and Katie Smith (winning artwork pictured right). Highly Commended were Corinne McCaggerty, Anna MacLeod, Caitlin Davidson and James Cox from Trinity High in Renfrewshire, alongside David McQueen and Eilidh Cameron, also from Jordanhill School.
Peter Martin took time out from his busy schedule filming his Friday night football show for STV, to host the awards. Representatives from the top clubs came along to present prizes to the young people. Special guests included Shelley Kerr, the Scotland Women’s team Head Coach, who is at Hampden as part of her preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 in June.
Rosemary Mooney, SQA Responsible Business Manager, said: “The Show Racism the Red Card competition showcases the creativity of Scotland’s young people, as well as their belief that there is no place for racism in Scotland. SQA thanks all the competitors, teachers and lecturers who joined us in backing this initiative.”
