The Department of Justice and Equality is delighted to announce its new art competition for primary schools, “Someone Like Me”.
This fantastic competition aims to promote disability awareness among primary school children and give them a greater understanding of what unites children of differing abilities. Someone Like Me allows children to learn about and discuss these topics and creatively express what they’ve learned through art.
