Announcing the winners of the INTO Love Makes a Family competition

June 2017

The INTO is delighted to announce the winners of the Love Makes a Family competition. The competition was run to coincide with International Family Equality Day and International Day of Action Against Homophobia.

Our families take many forms, but they all have one thing in common - love. The entries to the competition also took many forms (artwork, poems and stories, music and videos), but they all had one thing in common - creativity.

The judges were impressed by the creativity and hard work shown by the children and teachers who entered! Our first prize winners in each of the class categories won an iPad for their class and a hamper of books each and all other prizewinners won hampers of books.
