Prizes will include an AWARE Paws b mindfulness course for the winning school and runner up, an appearance on Joel’s social media account whilst he teaches the winning child a few of his incredible tricks, a performance from Joel in the winning school, AWARE x Joel M limited edition hoodies and many more!
But that’s not all… this competition has a legacy…
The winning poem, along with some resources from AWARE’s mental health experts, will be turned into a children’s mental health book and will be sent out to all partaking schools.
AWARE is committed to responding to the need of support for mental health within our country, so we have now begun to roll out a new mindfulness course called ‘Paws b’ which teaches 7-11 year olds the tools they need to protect their minds as they navigate into their teenage years. In line with this age group, we have decided to open this competition to Primary 6 and Primary 7 pupils.
