Interactive history competition at Chatsworth Youth Centre.

An interactive history competition inspired by Mandela’s birthday which “Celebrates life and celebrates our history., Celebrate Life, Celebrate our History is a competition offering prizes to the value of R120,000 and open to primary school and secondary school learners and the public. Schools from greater Durban have been encouraged to participate.

Entrants are invited to present the history of anything South African – their family, church, soccer club, school etc. Entries must have a written and a practical / display component. The process culminates in an exhibition on October 24 and 25 of the winning entries in each category with the prize-giving on October 25. The project - which is hosted by the Chatsworth Youth Centre, the Umlazi History Forum and the Satyagraha (the Gandhi organization) - is in partnership with participating libraries throughout KZN where entry forms can be collected.

Entry is free and all are welcome. Entry forms at libraries and entrants must be registered library users.
