The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games is committed to ensuring that children and young people are at the heart of the Games and what better way to do that than by enlisting their help to welcome our 6,500 athletes and visitors?

Game On Scotland is asking every school in Scotland to get their pupils to design posters to be placed in the rooms of the Athletes’ Village. We’ll guarantee to every individual school that takes part that their chosen artwork will be displayed in the village – your pupils’ work could end up in the bedroom of Usain Bolt, Tom Daley or any of the talented athletes coming to Scotland from all over the world.

At the end of the Games, athletes and officials will be encouraged to take your art as a gift from the people of Scotland and, excitingly, to write back to you offering their thanks.



How it will work / key Information

◦Don’t start yet! We only need schools to register their interest now and we’ll send full competition guidance at the beginning of the new school session to those who have signed up.

◦The competition is only open to schools in Scotland.

◦Schools will be invited to run an in-school competition involving as many pupils as possible, selecting a pre-determined number of winning pieces (fewer than 10). Schools may wish to organise in-school exhibitions of their work.

◦The school should then send the winning pieces to the Glasgow 2014 Organising Committee. We will then arrange for the winning artwork to go on display in the Athletes’ Village.

◦Along with the artwork, we will also be asking schools to send us stamped-addressed postcards (one per winning entry) which we will encourage the athletes and officials to return with comments.
