​The Draw Together Challenge – aimed at empowering children to help and support others who face discrimination – is open to entries until June 11.

Open to primary-age pupils across England and Wales, entrants are asked to draw or paint a picture on the theme of “allyship”.

The image should also detail the positive action pupils will take to help challenge discriminatory behaviour, wherever they see it.

It is being run by Premier League Primary Stars and takes the form of a free downloadable activity as part of the Premier League’s No Room For Racism initiative.

The initiative is being supported by CBeebies presenter Ben Cajee, who recently visited Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School in Liverpool to talk to year 6 pupils about his personal experiences of racism.

The challenge will run until Friday, June 11, and teachers are able to submit artwork on behalf of their class at key stage 1 or as individual submissions for key stage 2 pupils.

All schools that submit entries ahead of the deadline will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to receive Premier League goodies for their school. One lucky school will receive a visit from the Premier League trophy.

The artwork and pledges of 20 pupils will also be selected at random to be displayed in a No Room For Racism gallery on the Premier League and Premier League Primary Stars websites, while all primary schools that enter the challenge will receive copies of the official PL Writing Stars poetry book Beautifully Different, Wonderfully the Same for their libraries.
