As part of the Colleges Week celebration, a nationwide competition is being launched called ‘I’m running the show’. The competition is calling on students to submit a video, up to 2 minutes, of what they would do if they were ‘running the show’ for a day. Students are invited to answer the question in any way and as creatively as they’d like, from a simple speech or presentation to a song and dance routine; from an animation to a practical demonstration of the skills you are learning. Winning students will get a fantastic prize, see the list below.
Students can submit their video up until 31st October via the Colleges week website. The Competition is open to all students currently enrolled on a college course at a general or tertiary
further education College, sixth form College or specialist College in England.
Prizes include an in-depth visit to the UK Parliament; the chance to go on set and meet the cast and crew of Hollyoaks; shadow Sven-Göran Eriksson; chat with an astronaut and take a tour with the British National Space Centre; go behind the scenes of a theatre; r
ead between the lines at top magazine Top Santé; spend a day with the chief executive of BAA Airports; spend the day with the Chief Executive of the 5,000 acres of historic royal parkland exploring how they combine culture and conservation; spend a day with Sir Stuart Rose, Chief Executive of Marks & Spencer.
