Curriculum Competitions

What are the Curriculum Competitions?

The Curriculum Competitions provide schools with the opportunity to get young people, outside of participation, involved in other aspects of the Sainsbury's School Games. 

Does your school have budding young journalists or statisticians?
Via your school blog on, you can upload content supplied by your students and enter their work into the Curriculum Competitions.

What kind of work can be entered?
Whether it's match analysis, creative writing, sports commentary, video footage (via YouTube) or a great image captured by your sports photographer your pupil's creativity could be selected to win a fantastic once in a lifetime prize!

How can I enter?
Submission to the Curriculum Competitions must be from young people aged 9-19 and entries can be uploaded by registered schools who login and blog on the Sainsbury's School Games website. By ticking the 'enter the Curriculum Competition' box and entering the name of the pupil(s) who created the work your young people could be winners.

Please note submissions can be made at any time during term time and not just the dates listed so long as corresponding categories are selected.

What can we win by entering the Curriculum Competitions?

There are a range of exciting prizes to be won in 2014/15, including media packs (pictured below) for schools and the opportunity for your school to receive training and places as a part of the Young Media Team at the Sainsbury's 2015 School Games in Manchester in September. Further details of these amazing opportunities will be released over the coming months.
