Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month Competition 2016

Each June Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month aims to celebrate the culture and history of the Travelling communities in the UK and raise awareness to help combat widespread prejudice, stereotyping and misunderstanding.

The NATT+ GRTHM Competiton 2016 is called:

Simply The Best

2016 is the year of the Rio Olympics and European Football Championships in France. So accordingly, the theme of this year’s NATT+ GRTHM Competition is great sporting or physical achievements.

  • Do you know of any Gypsy Roma Traveller people past or present who have inspired you through their amazing sporting or physical achievements?
  • Which Gypsy Roma Traveller people have got to the top of their sport?
  • Do you know any Gypsy Roma Traveller Olympians?

NATT+ invites you to enter our contest and express your ideas. Use any medium you wish – a picture, a painting, a piece of writing or poem or something else.

The closing date is July 8th 2016.

Your entries must be about Gypsy Roma Traveller people and their sporting exploits – for example football, horse-riding and boxing or skilled activities such as juggling, tight-rope walking and dancing!
