General Election 2017 Twitter Competition



On 8th June, eligible adults will be voting to decide who will represent them in government for the next 5 years. The Go-Givers team is inviting KS1 and KS2 children to give their views about issues in society that they wish to see changed.

To enter the competition simply post your video tweets, 30 - 60 seconds long, onto your school's Twitter page. The winner will be decided by the most re-tweets of a post. The competition ends on Wednesday 7th June at 5pm.

Tips for the children:

  1. Introduce yourself, including your name and age
  2. Say what you don't like in society and would like to see changed
  3. Use an example to help explain your reasons
  4. Suggest what the new government should do

Example of what to say: 

Hi, my name is Sam Davies, I'm 7 years old and I don't like breathing dirty air.

 

When I walk to school the dirty air from cars and buses is really nasty. It tastes bad and makes me feel ill.

 

The new government should clean the air up so that my lungs can breathe and I can feel better.
