Mayor of Reading Launches ‘Where’s Reading Heading’ Children’s Competition

unnamedYOUNG people are being invited to take part in a competition which has been launched by the Mayor of Reading Councillor Sarah Hacker.

The picture and writing competition is based on Reading Museum’s new project called Where’s Reading Heading?

Children aged five to 10-years-old are invited to draw or paint what Reading means to them, either now or in the future.

Young people aged between 11 – 16-years-old are being asked to write up to 300 words about where Reading is heading.

The winners of both sections will receive a prize from the Mayor and have their entries displayed in the Mayor’s Parlour.

Cllr Hacker said:

“I’m really thrilled to be launching this competition which I hope will make children and young people think about the town they live in, use their imagination and have fun.

“I can’t wait to see the entries coming in and, you never know, it might even give us some exciting ideas for the Reading of the future.”

Where’s Reading Heading is a project which looks at the past, present and future development of Reading. It features a short documentary film which draws together the views and knowledge of a widespread group of Reading people.

More information about the project can be found at: http://www.readingmuseum.org.uk/get-involved/projects-consultation/where-s-reading-heading/

Entries should be sent to The Mayor’s Parlour, Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU with the entrant’s name, age, address, and a contact number or email address on the back. Or they can be sent by email to mayor@reading.gov.uk.

The closing date is Monday 1st February 2016.
