Unicef UK have launched a competition to design a rights-based game Unicef's Child Rights Launchpad that can be played in the classroom, playground, or sports hall.

The game should have the broad aim of helping other children to understand an individual article of the UNCRC or a rights-related concept like participation; non-discrimination or equality. Winners will be chosen in three categories: 3-7 years; 8 -12 years and 13-18 years and each school will be allowed a maximum of five entrants.

Winners will receive a certificate as well as having their game features on Launchpad. They will also be invited to take part in Unicef's special Year of Young People event in Scotland in March 2018.
