ROAR 2020 helping children develop their creativity
ROAR - 7 Billion Ideas
Lions ROAR 2020 is an ideas competition for primary schools created by Lions Clubs International and run by 7billionideas, the award winning education company. It aims to unlock the creative spirit in every child by giving them the time to imagine and develop ideas that could change the world!
The competition is for Key Stage 2 students of Primary Schools up to the age of 10/11 as well as pupils at Special Needs Schools up to the age of 11/12. The purpose is to encourage and develop the creativity existing in all young people. The objective is to generate and develop an IDEA that could change the World. It could be about absolutely anything as long as it has a positive impact on the planet.
The competition has been structured to hit a number of different areas of the curriculum including PHSE, Citizenship, SMSC and British Values. All too often we are told that schools are too busy to take on anything new, but this competition hits all the above values and is FUN for the children.
Lions Clubs initially contact schools to see if they are interested in taking part and then 7billionideas take over. To help and assist with contacting schools there is a video that can be shown to teachers, so they more fully understand the opportunities offered by the ROAR programme. This is available on www.lions-roar.com
The Timetable is:
From now until 9th April 2020 Lions Clubs to decide and confirm how many school(s) they would like to sponsor at £300 per school. This money is paid to the District Treasurer (Charity) by the 9th April date
From Mid-April to September 2020 7billionideas provide each participating school with a Teacher Pack and a September visit date when they will come to the school to engage with the pupils.
From September 2020 schools can work on their ideas for the competition and then invite their sponsoring Lions Club to come and assist with selecting the entry to go forward to the finals.
December 2020 The final will be held early December when all schools will bring their ideas to a central location.
For each school that enters the final each child will be given a t-shirt, certificate and medal and for the winning school, their idea will be turned into a book that will be sold on Amazon.
