Prizes, Schools History Prize, Teacher Resources


March is Women’s History Month and the Schools’s History Prize is a fantastic opportunity for students to get involved in ‘doing’ history. This year’s theme is “History’s Heroines” and we  are asking students to research the history of a woman they deem to be a true “hero” of history!  Individual students or a student group from the same school can submit a piece of art reflecting their chosen hero and/or her accomplishments.

What better way to celebrate #womenshistorymonth and get creative!

Due to the Corona Virus we have extended the deadline for submission to 1 June 2020. Entries will be judged by the Steering Committee. The committee will pick one winning design (drawing, painting, collage, graphic design, whatever you choose!) from a student or student group from a primary school and one winning design submitted from a student or student group from a secondary school. The winning designs will be produced on Women’s History Network merchandise which will be available for sale at WHN events and online. Both winners will receive free merchandise as well as £250 of funding for their school.
