School Games Curriculum Competitions

The  School Games Curriculum Competitions provide schools and colleges with the opportunity to get children and young people, outside of participation, involved in other aspects of the Cumbria School Games.

Design a Flag

Cumbria School Games Local Organising Committee is delighted to challenge you to create a new flag for the school games.

This competition gives pupils the chance to look at different flags, consider the school games values, be creative, and think about different textures and materials in design. The children will: 

  • explore the School Games Values, and have a deeper consideration for the value they have been allocated; 
  • reflect on their own values
  • identify personal target in relation to the School Games Values
  • understand the connection between flags and symbols and identity in people's lives.

Each area has been given one of the school games values:

  • Determination - Furness
  • Honesty - Eden
  • Passion - Copeland
  • Respect - Allerdale
  • Self-belief - Carlisle
  • Teamwork – South Lakes

These values were developed by young people to recognise how the experience of sport should be epitomised and embodied within schools, and to reflect the 'spirit' of the School Games.

The winning flags for each of the six districts will be created by Youthability and Stitchability at Leonard Cheshire Disability based in Barrow. 

Prize: The winners in each of the six districts will be invited for a VIP experience at the School Games Summer Finals on Wed 10th July where they will be able to bring a friend and will take part in the opening ceremony as official flag bearers. 

Deadline: Closing date 29th March

Entries should be returned to: Joanna Coleman, Active Cumbria, Cumbria House, 107-110 Botchergate, Carlisle CA1 3RD 01228 226885

Entries can also be returned to any branch of The Cumberland
