**Prize now announced: winning school team will visit New York City!**

The OCR exam board have identified us as an innovative heritage partner to work with on their new history GCSE, which contains units about Britain’s migration history.

This is an exciting step for the revised curriculum. Teams of students will focus on one or more aspects of their migration topic, and enter exhibition plans for how this could be displayed in a national migration museum to engage wide audiences. A high-profile panel convened by MMP and OCR will judge the most inspiring and creative entries and announce the winners and at a final event in London in April 2018.

We have also now confirmed that the winning team will have the opportunity to visit New York City as the prize. NYC is home to the inspiring museum on Ellis Island, and our friends at the Tenement Museum, so pupils will have the chance to see migration heritage USA style!

The teachers briefing pack is available here. For more information, and to register your school please contact our Head of Learning and partnerships, Emily Miller at emily@migrationmuseum.org
