Oban Black Lives Matter (BLM) has launched a competition, aimed at primary school children, to design an anti-racist poster.

The group are asking children from Pre school-P7 to design an A4 size poster showing their own ideas about anti-racism and to make it bright, bold and full of imagination.

Photographs of the posters should be emailed to no later than Friday September 4 with the email clearly stating the name, age, school and year group of the entrant along with a contact telephone number.

The winner in each category (pre-school; P1-3; P4-5; P6-7) will have their poster displayed in the window of Specsavers and Oban Youth Cafe throughout September, which is Black History Month. Each winner will also receive a book suitable for their age and an extra copy for their classroom library.

All entries will be posted on the Oban BLM Facebook page and winners will be decided by the highest number of likes they receive.
