Glasgow's Hate Crime Awareness Week (HCAW) will take place from 18-22 October 2021. This campaign encourages activity to educate and raise awareness of the harm and devastation hate crime can cause, whilst encouraging victims and witnesses to speak out and report these incidents.
A hate crime is any crime motivated by prejudice or hate against a person on the basis of their race, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, transgender identity, or variations in sex characteristics.
As part of our efforts to mark HCAW in Glasgow, schools across the city participated in the Hate Crime Awareness Slogan competition which ran from September-October. The aim of the competition was to encourage collaboration and creativity to promote an anti-discriminatory ethos in our school communities.
Primary and secondary schools across Glasgow were tasked with creating a slogan that represents the theme of this year's competition - Community Cohesion.
We are delighted to announce this year's shortlisted entries for the primary school category which have been chosen by our panel of judges:
Imanuel, P7a at St. Roch's Primary School - 'Challenge. Report. Change.'
Tariq, P7b at St. Bridget's Primary School - 'Where there is hate, there is always room for love.'
Mollie, P7 at Thornwood Primary School - 'No hate, there's no debate.'
To vote for the winner, please visit our twitter page @GlasgowCC. The poll closes on Friday 15 October and the winners will be announced on Monday 18 October, marking the first day of HCAW.
The winning entry in both categories (primary and secondary) will receive a £250 cash prize.
