Junior Roller Derby Month competition


The UKRDA is very excited to announce a new Junior-focused initiative!

The idea was inspired by a similar programme ran by Smarty Pants of TXRD who conducted an essay competition for junior players in anticipation of JuniorCon. The winner(s) of the competition received the ‘Get Smarty Scholarship’ of a free full pass to Junior Con.

The UKRDA has put together a similar competition for all junior skaters (or aspiring skaters) in the UK, regardless of whether or not they are UKRDA members, in order to promote and raise the profile of junior roller derby in the UK.

So, if you are or you know an aspiring junior roller derby athlete please take a look at the guidelines and have a go at entering!

We have selected the following titles for the subject of the competition:

My Favourite Thing About Roller Derby
A Time When Roller Derby Helped Me

Entrants are welcome to submit their answer in any form they wish, among those suggested are: Essay, poem, story, original song, video, painting/visual artwork, collage, animation or anything you can think of!

Please download and read the competition guidelines and make sure you complete the cover page and submit it along side your entry.

Submit all entries by the 26th of July 2015 to be in with the chance of winning some very special prizes and opportunities for you and your team – these will be announced shortly.

Your work will also be assessed by a star-studded panel of some of the UK’s most prominent roller derby greats who will also be announced in due course!
