Ferdinand: Let's get drawing to make a positive impact

Former Man Utd defender is encouraging schoolchildren to get involved in the Premier League's Draw Together Challenge

As a former Manchester United captain, Rio Ferdinand is used to motivating and supporting his team-mates to be the best they can be.

And he is using those leadership skills to encourage schoolchildren to get involved in the Premier League's Draw Together Challenge.

The Draw Together Challenge asks primary schoolchildren to draw or paint a picture on the theme of allyship, empowering them to help challenge discriminatory behaviour wherever they see it.

"It's just so important right now that we are there for each other," Ferdinand says. "The Challenge allows you to show how you will be there for someone who faces discrimination.

"I know I'll be getting my kids to get involved in the Challenge and I can't wait to see all of your efforts too."

There is No Room For Racism

The Draw Together Challenge is part of the Premier League's No Room For Racism initiative and is available through Premier League Primary Stars.

The challenge runs until Friday 11 June 2021.

Teachers can submit artwork on behalf of their class at Key Stage 1 (5-7-year-olds) or as individual submissions for Key Stage 2 pupils (7-11-year-olds) via the online teacher form on the PL Primary Stars website.

All schools who submit entries before the deadline will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to receive Premier League goodies.

One lucky entrant will get the chance for their school to receive a special visit from the Premier League Trophy.
