Songwriting competition ‘Health’s Got Talent’

Health’s Got Talent’ aims to get kids thinking healthily

Youngsters from local primary schools have been invited to take part in a competition which could win them studio recording time with 8 year old local celebrity Lil T.

Following the success of ‘Staying Healthy is the Way to Go’, produced by Lil T with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, the Trust has launched a new songwriting competition ‘Health’s Got Talent’. Youngsters aged 4-11 are invited to put pen to paper and get drafting the latest health rap or song, to help raise awareness of how kids can do small things to be healthy. The winning song will feature on the Trust’s www.healthforkids.co.uk website for primary school children.

The competition launch coincides with the ninth series of Britain’s Got Talent returning to UK screens this month. The official launch date is Tuesday April 28, 2015. Youngsters need to have their entries in by Friday May 29, 2015.

Margaret Clarke, Lead School Nurse for LPT at Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust, said: “We want kids to get as creative as possible to come up with their health-inspired songs. The competition is about getting kids to start thinking about how they can be healthier and encourage their peers to stay healthy.

They can work on their own, with their friends or as a school. They can send us just the words, a recording of the song or a video of themselves performing the song. Mums and Dads can get involved and nominated their youngster to take part. ”

“This is an innovative way of getting kids to be creative, have some fun and learn at an early age good healthy habits to take on into their teenage years and beyond. We are really excited about the competition and having Lil T on board. We are looking forward to seeing all the entries.”

The winner will get to spend one hour in a recording studio with Lil T creating their song or rap. The song will feature on the healthforkids.co.uk website.

Don't exert the affected area, and avoid athletic activity until it's treated. This treatment is also excellent for curing any psychological problems and can relieve stress. Medical massage therapy is being offered in hospitals 30% more since 2004 because of its benefits for not only pain management, but also for depression and anxiety (7).

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers? Stop by my blog post [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2viS7yo9jY]CT limo[/url]
