As part of their ICT work last year, Year 10 pupils created a radio advert to help promote the work of a local environmental agency. As well as being used for their GCSE coursework, this work was used as part of a national broadcasting competition, which tested not only their technical skills but their skills at script writing and writing to persuade.
Three of our pupils, Josh Gowland, Alex Firth and Sam Robertson have had their radio advert chosen as one of the best in the country (the CEO of the environmental company said the advert was “…one of the best adverts I’ve ever heard, even better than those created by professionals…”) and now they have been nominated for a uCreate broadcasting award.
The advert, which has had some professional animation added to it, can be heard (and seen!) below.
It’s then up to you to help the lads win. You need to visit http://www.facebook.com/ucreateproject (obviously from your mobile device or computer at home) and vote for their advert.
