The 2020 Stronger Than Hate Challenge is now closed. While this year's contest didn't receive enough qualified submissions, we look forward to receiving your entries in 2021!
Do your pupils have what it takes to recognize hate AND to try to stop it? The Stronger Than Hate Challenge invites students ages 13-18 to create a video, write a poem, song, or blog, or produce a painting or piece of artwork that demonstrates the chosen medium’s potential to create a community that is stronger than hate. Winning entries are eligible to win up to £8,500 in prizing!
Step 1: Learn
Start the challenge journey with the Stronger Than Hate interactive module. Students will learn about the origins of hate, plus hear how listening to and telling stories can make us all more empathetic, help us recognise our shared humanity, and create a world that is stronger than hate. (Module is self-paced and takes 15-20 minutes.)Launch Module
Step 2: Create
After completing the module, students work individually or as a team (up to 4 members) to create their challenge submission. The submission can take multiple forms – videos, poems, songs, blogs, paintings, and artwork are all accepted – with the ultimate goal of connecting people, building empathy, and bringing community members together through the power of testimony and story.Challenge Overview
Step 3: Submit
After finalising their work, students are asked to register for an account to officially submit their project for consideration. Students must obtain consent from a parent or guardian in order to create an account, which can be completed electronically with a few simple steps. Parents/guardians will receive a username and password to share with their child to complete the submission process.
