Surrey students have been handed an Olympic challenge with a difference, going for gold in art and creative writing competitions.

Students have until the end of April to enter their 2012 Games inspired illustrations, collages, poetry, short stories or song lyrics.

Artwork can be in any form that is two-dimensional and creative writing entries can be up to 500 words.

The competitions, organised by Surrey County Council, are part of the P&G Surrey School Games and are open to young people aged between seven and 16 with medals for different age groups.

Helyn Clack, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services and the 2012 Games, said: “The Olympics isn’t just about sport and these competitions prove you don’t have to be a track and field star to achieve gold. They give students a chance to show off their creative skills with Games inspired artwork.”

The 2012 P&G Surrey School Games, which started in January, will see more than 6,000 young people compete in more than 50 sport and art competitions over 150 days.
