Home School Competition sponsored by NEU

Looking for a fun and educational activity to do at home? This competition is for you! And we have some amazing prizes into the bargain! 

The 100 Great Black Britons competition created in partnership with Patrick Vernon OBE and sponsored by NEU is open to all age groups. It’s a fantastic way to encourage your children to explore and learn more about Black British History and how it helped shape Britain.


“The current crisis has highlighted the centrality of Black people in Britain, to the NHS and care work, transport systems, food supplies, utilities, research, education and so much more. The NEU supports this competition to celebrate what we have always known that Britain’s history is irrefutably rooted in Black and global history and that our members do a fantastic job in teaching this.  It will be a fabulous opportunity to showcase some of their work and that of their pupils”. 

Kevin Courtney, NUE Joint General Secretary


For this competition you will need to create a unique piece of work, drawing, poster, short story, video or artwork. It’s your chance to get creative and celebrate 100 Great Black Britons and their legacy.

We also want to encourage parents and teachers to share their resources and lesson plans and help make this a fun and educational activity not only during the current lockdown but also as a school resource for the future.


Share ideas, be creative and have fun exploring Black British History!  


Winners will be announced in October 2020
