Each year the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative Committee invites all schools in Wales to enter heritage projects in a nationwide competition.

 

Each year the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative Committee invites all schools in Wales to enter heritage projects in a nationwide competition. The word "heritage" is interpreted in the widest sense, to include people and their social history, religion, traditions and culture; the world of work, agriculture, industry, finance, commerce, science, technology, arts and sport.

These projects can be part of the usual curriculum-focused work carried out as part of the timetable, or they can reflect work done by the school to commemorate a local event, person or building.

The projects require research, collection of materials, analysis and evaluation and communication skills. They may be presented as exhibitions, performances, restorations and other forms of contribution to heritage, or as records in print or electronic form.

Schools are encouraged to involve their community and people of different generations in their projects and to disseminate their findings.

All schools entering the competition are visited by judges who assess the project, taking into account the appropriate level of literacy, numeracy and information technology skills.

At an Awards Ceremony prizes are awarded for the best projects in each category: infant, primary and secondary. The prizes are presented to the winners by the sponsors who donated them. The Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative Shields (donated by the National Museums and Galleries of Wales) are presented to the best overall primary and secondary entries. The ceremony is held at a different location in Wales each year.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has sponsored the setting up of the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative Archive. This includes the Initiative's records, a list of prize-winning schools and a selection of winning entries. It is lodged at the National Library of Wales and the Museum of Welsh Life.
