Railton Foundation Swellendam in collaboration with Swellengram presents a Design and Story Competition

This exciting competition aims to offer the opportunity for young people who live in the Greater Swellendam area, who ‘dare to dream’, to win something very special. It is aimed at young people between the ages of 8 – 16 and is designed to reward imagination and independent thinking. There are three categories –
• design an outfit
• write a story about a female  Superhero (mother,granny, teacher, aunt)
• write a story about a female Superhero and illustrate it.
Participants are asked to think about what makes someone a superhero – what is their superpower? What is their mission in life? How will they solve problems and make the world a better place?
This competition is for the child who enjoys creative expression, but who often gets overlooked in the rush by others to get noticed by parading down catwalks, appearing in plays or scoring winning goals every week.
If you know a child like this, or if you are a young person who identifies with this, then visit the Railton Foundation office in Veldkornet Street, Swellendam to get an entry form. Prizes will be awarded by the creator of the dolls, Yolanda Donkers internationally known singer, who herself, ‘dared to dream’. Her story is an amazing one – and she will be coming to Swellendam to present the prizes as part of a Womans Day event in August.
