Spirited Arts 2019 winners announced!

We would like to thank all schools, teachers and pupils for taking the time to enter their pupils’ work for the 2019 Spirited Arts & Poetry competition. Congratulations to all the winners this year!

There were five categories in the Spirited Arts & Poetry competition this year, all attracting very large numbers of entries. We estimate that over 40,000 children and young people took part in the competition, and we would like to thank them all, and their teachers for the insight, hard work and spiritual thinking that went on. Winning one of the 54 prizes is a great achievement!

The entries to the competition as always have been of an extremely high-standard, making judging it a tremendous challenge. We have however selected the 2019 winners of both arts and poetry, and these can be viewed online.

The winners all receive an Amazon voucher, and winning schools are also rewarded with a copy of one of RE Today’s best-selling poster packs; 'What happens in…?' (Primary) or 'Exploring Essential Concepts' (Secondary). All entrants sent to NATRE receive certificates of achievement.

The web gallery gets hundreds of thousands of hits: do use it with your pupils as preparation for the next competition and as good RE.

We look forward to seeing your pupils work next year! Many schools have built the competition into their schemes of RE work, and we encourage this!

We benefit from the generous support of the All Saints Educational Trust and the Westhill Trust, so we run the competition on a free to enter basis! Thanks to them for their invaluable support.
