WANTED: Young people to enter competition!

Bedfordshire Police is inviting young people, aged between 11 and 18, to put their creative skills to the test with a performing arts competition designed to highlight the dangers and consequences of committing street robberies.
Street robberies are often committed by young offenders and the victims are often young people. Some young people may not realise their conduct constitute an offence or the severity of their actions. It is this misguided view youngsters are being encouraged to explore and highlight in their video.

The competition is part of the force’s drive to fight crime and protect the public while making offenders feel less assured and this is being supported by the charity Crimestoppers.

The ‘Stay Safe’ competition requires entrants to create a three minute performance video in which they sing, dance or act!

The prize

Entries must be received no later than October 26, 2012.
Finalists will see their videos posted on Bedfordshire Police’s website where the public will be invited to vote for their favourite in each of the three categories.
The winner from each category will receive £100 worth of high street vouchers, and their performance will be presented at a ‘showcase’ at the force’s headquarters in December.
