Enter the creative writing competition

Kick It Out launches 'Write to Unite' creative writing competition!

Kick It Out has launched a FREE national competition, entitled ‘Write to Unite’, in conjunction with the Arvon Foundation, the creative writing company.

The ‘Write to Unite’ competition officially opened on Friday 1 November as it looks for young people, aged 7-18, from across England to creatively display how football can unite people regardless of their background.

Entries can include: a poem, story, song or chant a match report, player interview or a feature to appear in a match programme or website feature.

The competition has three age categories, 7-10, 11-14 and 15-18, with 31 January 2014 at 5pm the deadline for submission.

The winners of the categories could be in with a chance to win prizes including an England shirt, match tickets, books and signed merchandise.
