A competition for children aged 12 and under will be taking place in libraries across Wales with some fantastic WRU prizes up for grabs!
The competition aims to encourage children to discover what they can find in their local library and will take place in libraries across Wales between the 7th February and the 19th March 2016 to coincide with the RBS 6 Nations Championship.
Children will have to discover where Scorch, the WRU mascot, is hiding in their local library and fill in a short form to enter the competition. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs including Wales Rugby Union shirts, WRU wallets, pin badges and activity packs.
Deputy Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, Ken Skates said: “This is a creative idea offering young people across Wales the chance to embrace this year’s Six Nations tournament while also making the most of their local library facilities. 2016 marks the Year of Adventure in Wales so I would definitely encourage everyone to get involved with this adventure competition. While searching for Scorch why not also use this opportunity to discover your next favourite book or author.”
A spokesman for the Welsh Rugby Union said: “This is a great competition for young people to combine their passion for rugby and literature; both are important parts of Welsh tradition and culture.”
