Stockport Academy Student Shows Racism The Red Card

A Stockport Academy student’s creativity and artistic flair has seen her win a national award in support of anti-racism.

Evie Griffiths in Year 9 picked up the Show Racism The Red Card Award in the Year 7-9 Artwork category after the school submitted her poster, based around the theme of equality, to the competition’s judges.

The talented young artist spent every lunchtime for three weeks working on the piece, and even stayed after school to finish it. She was presented with the award at Stoke City Football Club, with the Premier League side’s manager Paul Lambert among the attendees cheering her on.

Evie said: “I wanted to show it doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside as we all fit together, and that’s why my design was inspired by a jigsaw. The competition itself is a really good idea – at school we are always talking about respect and it’s so important that we treat each other the right way.”

Head of Art Ms Stirling said: “Evie really is a model student and totally deserves this award. She has put so much time and effort into her work and it really shows and the message behind it is extremely powerful. At Stockport Academy, we aim to provide an education with character and Evie’s work – and achievement – sums this up perfectly.”
