For the fifth year running, children at the borough’s schools are being urged to take part in the Wandsworth/GLL Heritage Awards for Schools competition.

The competition is aimed at Key Stage 2 students and this year there are two award categories – Best Class and Best Individual. The competition is designed to inspire greater knowledge of and interest in Wandsworth’s rich history and heritage, and help young people develop a sense of place.




How to Enter

Submissions must be related to the history of Wandsworth (for example, “The History of the Alton Estate”, "How and why have our local shops changed?” or “Wandsworth in Wartime”).

Best Class – As a class (minimum 5 students), submit a piece of work with both written and visual elements.

Best Individual – Submit either a written or visual piece of work.

The written element could be in the form of an essay, short story, poem or song.

The visual element could be a piece of art, short video or photography.

The deadline for entry is Friday 7th June 2019


Best Class – Win £750 for your school and a Trampoline or Ice Skating party for your class.

Best Individual – Win £750 for your school and a £100 Amazon voucher for yourself.

Prizes and certificates will be presented by the Mayor of Wandsworth at a special Town Hall Awards Ceremony in July 2019.
