SHOWING RACISM THE RED CARD AGAIN

23 March 2014

NC Graphic Design students Charlie Law and Kim Louden took the train through to Glasgow last week with course tutor Alex Gunn to attend the annual Show Racism the Red Card Awards at Hampden Park, where Charlie won in the FE category and Kim was highly commended.

Each year the Red Card Scotland creative competition asks young people to come up with an inventive way of promoting the core messages of anti-racism and anti-sectarianism. This was the 10th awards ceremony to be held at Hampden Park, and over 4,500 young people from schools and colleges across Scotland took part in this year's competition. The judges were Craig Brown (ex Scotland Manager)Denise O’Sullivan and Ella Stephen (Glasgow City FC), Liam Craig (Captain of Hibernian FC),Veronica Rankin (former EIS Equality Officer and Red Card Supported), William McIlvanny (Novelist and Writer Against Racism) and Yvonne Donald from Education Scotland.

Charlie's success means that we've managed to produce a winner in each of the past five years at SRRC, and as well as the prospect of his design work being used across Scotland in 2014/2015, Charlie managed to get his hands on a signed Celtic shirt!
