GRTHM Competition

To help promote and celebrate Gypsy, Roma, Traveller History Month, the Traveller Education Service held a competition with children that we support in schools to create a picture about being a Traveller and what it means to them.

We had lots of entries from Reception to Year 6 and they were all wonderful. The entries have been judged independently by carefully selected colleagues from Cognus (Joanna Cassey – Managing Director – and James Leadbetter – Business Systems and Intelligence Manager). They had a tough job reviewing all the pictures to choose just one winner for each group but the verdicts are in and the winners can be seen below. The winners will each receive a prize.
