Shakespeare’s Treasures

Just read about this brilliant competition through the Bee-It blog. Aimed at young teenagers, this is a virtual treasure hunt designed to hone information skills. The prize is a beautiful – and valuable- gilded mask; ‘Shakespeare’s Treasure’. There are two parts to the competition, the first part consists of 15 questions, the second part involves solving riddles based on 37 paintings. You can find out more information and see some sample questions here. The competition costs £10 to enter, 25% of which goes to a fund to help gifted children from deprived backgrounds to achieve artistic success.
