The RCSLT and The Communication Trust have teamed up to run this year’s Voice Box Competition. The competition – now for the first time open to both primary and secondary school pupils – aims to raise awareness amongst children of the fun and importance of communication.
So what does the competition involve? Mainstream and specialist primary and secondary schools in England, Scotland and Wales can take part by holding a joke-telling competition (working either on their own or with their speech and language therapists) between the 7th September and the 14th December 2015.
Schools can send in the winning jokes by Monday December 14th to be in with a chance of having a joke shortlisted by the Voice Box judging panel. Those shortlisted will have the incredible experience of visiting the Houses of Parliament with their parent or guardian on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 for a national final, hosted at Speaker’s House.
Voice Box hopes, via to competition, to further highlight the fun aspects of communication for children – what better way to do so than with jokes and such fantastic prize opportunities! The competition too is a fantastic way for a child to start the new term and to get involved, whilst simultaneously building communication confidence in a safe, friendly environment.
