INSPIRING WOMEN AND GIRLS PRIMARY SCHOOL COMPETITION

‘Operation Inspiration’ Competition

The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 team wants 2020 to be a year of inspiration!

The Inspiring Women and Girls Primary School Competition, ‘Operation Inspiration’, involves the creation of a class e-book resource that will motivate and inspire other students around the country.

Participating classes will be expected to submit a digital e-book document in the form of a PDF presentation comprised of each student’s individual contribution to the project. Class entries are likely to be wide and varied as students are encouraged to choose an inspirational figure who resonates with them personally.

Each student should choose an inspirational figure for the class e-book, and their individual contribution must include the following:

  • An image and/or artistic representation of their chosen inspirational figure that captures the essence of this inspirational figure.
  • An overview of the life, journey and unique qualities of their chosen inspirational figure.
  • Significant achievements of their chosen inspirational figure and an explanation of how these achievements contributed to the legacy of this inspirational figure.
  • Any challenges that have been overcome by their chosen inspirational figure, including how their chosen inspirational figure has broken-down societal norms and expectations.
  • Justification for inclusion of this inspirational figure within the context of this project, including a rationale as to how this inspirational figure resonates with them personally.
  • Full reference list must be included with each individual contribution.
  • The success criteria listed below should be addressed in full.

Students are encouraged to be creative in the way they present their individual contribution for the class e-book. For example, students may choose to submit their contribution as an information report, creative writing piece, news article, biography, or journal entry.
