Mindcraft Competition 2021

Win a free creative arts and wellbeing workshop for your class!

In honour of World Mental Health Day, on 10 October, Corn Exchange Newbury are launching a competition for the primary classroom to raise awareness of mental health and promote mentally healthy brains!

We’re challenging children in Years R-6 to decorate a brain with activities and ideas for keeping mentally healthy and happy.

Your brain can be decorated with drawings or writing or both. You may use colouring pencils, oils, watercolours, collage, chalks or paints!

We’d love to see entries that promote the 5 ways to wellbeing: Be Active, Connect, Keep Learning, Give and Take Notice.

The winner will win a
free 1-hour creative arts and wellbeing workshop for their whole class!

The workshop will take place in-school with one of our theatre and education professionals, scheduled in partnership with the winner’s class teacher at a mutually convenient time during the Autumn term 2021.

You can download a MINDCRAFT brain template, entry form and accompanying teacher’s notes from the links below.

The deadline for entry is midday on Friday 1 October 2021.

The winners will be decided by the Corn Exchange Wellbeing Group and announced on our website and social media on World Mental Health Day, Sunday 10 October.

Please submit your entry by email to: [email protected]

(If you are submitting multiple entries, for example a class of 30 children, you only need to complete one entry form and please save their entries as one PDF document.)

If you have any questions, please contact a member of our Learning and Participation team on: 01635 582 666 (option 3)
