Love history? Then this competition is for you!
You could win £250 for yourself plus another £250 in vouchers for your school. Two runners-up will also receive £100 each.
The Cecil Roth Lecture Award is for students in Year 9 currently studying in Jewish schools who love history and aim to study history at GCSE and A Level.
To enter you need to design a poster which answers the question ‘What message would you give to people migrating to Britain today?’. The poster needs to be inspired by the museum’s collection and must include a 50 word explanation of their poster plus a title.
Applicants will be judged by an expert panel including Abigail Morris, Chief Executive of Jewish Museum London, and the best entries will be displayed at the museum with the winner and runners-up to be awarded at a special reception.
The award is in memory of Cecil Roth (1899-1970) who was an eminent Historian and specialised in Anglo-Jewish History.
All applicants must send their poster and 50 word explanations to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 18 September 2017.
The panel will then deliberate, with the winners being announced at a reception in Early November 2017 (date TBC). Remember, applicants must be in Year 9 and attend a Jewish school.
