Jubilee competition - Resources from The Bible Society
Platinum Jubilee competition
To celebrate 70 years of service of Her Majesty the Queen, Open the Book would like to invite you to take part in our Platinum Jubilee competition.
Any primary age schoolchild can take part.
We would like you to use any Bible verse or story that talks about the importance of service as your inspiration to send us your best drawing, poem, comic or short story of no more than 500 words.
Here are a few ideas:
‘Each one, as a good manager of God's different gifts, must use for the good of others the special gift he has received from God’ (1 Peter 4.10).
‘There is more happiness in giving than in receiving’ (Acts 20.35).
‘For even the Son of Man did not come to be served; he came to to serve’ (Mark 10.45).
‘And my Father will honour anyone who serves me’ (John 12.26).
How to enter
Submit entries by 5 pm on 29 April by emailing attachments to email@example.com
Please include the name of the school, adult contact name and a phone number, and confirm that parental permission has been given.
