The Bank of England is looking for schools and colleges from across the country to take part in their digital media competition “Bank, Camera, Action!”
The competition is open to all students from the ages of 7 to 19, and this year’s topic is a particularly timely one – “Climate change – never too small to make a big difference.’
Ogmore MP Chris Elmore said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for young people across Ogmore to get involved and raise awareness for a vitally important issue!
“Not only is it an opportunity for students to develop their skills through whatever medium they choose and to express themselves, it also allows them to put across their views on a topic that is so critically important for our and their future."
The Bank of England is raising awareness that a threat to the environment is also a threat to the economy with many economic activities arising from the burning of fossil fuels to generate energy and the costs of rising sea levels and extreme weather events.
Students from across the disciplines are encouraged to take part using whichever medium they choose, be it music, dance, animation, cartoons, or interviews, to create a film between one and three minutes long.
Chris Elmore MP added:
“The creativity of our young people never fails to surprise me and I encourage all local schools to take advantage of this opportunity to create something interesting, imaginative, and innovative. It’s a great opportunity for young people across Ogmore to shine!”
