Black History Month Poetry Competition Running For Primary School Children

14 October 2020

Preston North End Community and Education Trust is running a poetry competition for primary school children centred around the themes of Black History Month, with the winning entry to be included in a future edition of the matchday programme.

Children are asked to write a poem based around the themes of Black History Month and discrimination for the chance of having their effort recognised in the programme and receive a copy of the poetry book ‘Beautifully Different, Wonderfully The Same’. Meanwhile, ten runners-up will also receive a copy of the book!
