Christmas has come early for our city’s young people…..
Our city’s young people now have no excuse to bury themselves in the history of Wolverhampton as our city-wide Time Capsule Competition deadline for entries has been extended until Monday 4th January.
Last month we announced we will give the city’s young people the unique chance to submit an item that they would like to be added to the Youth Zone’s time capsule before it is buried in the ground. Now, we want more of you to do the same!
We are looking for ideas that young people will find interesting and that reflect life for a young person in 2015, come 50 years’ time.
From photos that relate to the Youth Zone or specific information about school, family life or the city of Wolverhampton, we want them!
Young people may even choose to submit something that reflects their culture or it may represent the diverse and multi-cultural community in which we live.
Remember, the time-capsule will not be opened until 2065 – at the earliest!
Andrew Turvey, Lead Youth Worker at The Way Youth Zone said: “We have already received some fantastic entries for the Youth Zone Tme Capsule Competition, but we want more! This is a great opportunity for the young people of the city to be a part of history.”
The competition will be judged by The Way’s Young People’s Development Group who will choose 10 winners and their submissions will be placed into the capsule.
Submission items should not exceed a width of 20cm – approximately the size of an A4 sheet of paper – so think small!
Entries are welcome from all young people aged 8-19, or up to 25 with a disability from Wolverhampton and must be sent with details of the young person including their name, age, address, contact telephone number and parental contact details (if under 16 years of age).
All items should be sent to: The Way Youth Zone, School Street, Wolverhampton, WV3 0NR.
The new deadline for entries is now: Monday 4th January
Winners will invited to a photo shoot at the Youth Zone alongside Council and The Way representatives in due course.
