Draw Your Hero! 

Newlands Shopping Centre are holding a children’s art competition, aimed to celebrate and recognise people who are working tirelessly to bring Kettering and the rest of the UK through the Covid-19 pandemic.


➡️ Children between 5-16 years old are being asked to draw a picture of the superhero in their lives, whether it’s their parent who’s a medical professional on the front line, their sibling who’s keeping shelves stocked in our local supermarkets, or their grandparent who is social distancing. It can be anyone in their daily life or community who deserve a 'thank-you' for everything they are doing in these difficult times.

➡️ Participants must submit their artwork in A4, alongside a short description outlining why they’ve chosen their hero and what makes them so special. Pictures can have serious or fun themes and the more colour the better.

➡️ The competition will run across 4 age categories: i) 5-7 years old; ii) 8-10 years old; iii) 11-13 years old and iv) 14-16 years old. All artwork will be showcased to the whole town in a window display in the middle of Newlands Shopping Centre and the winner of each age category will win a prize. Entries must be handed in to the centre management offices (located opposite TK Maxx) by 29th August.

Good luck!
