An entertainment competition covering the whole of North Lincolnshire and beyond is aiming to get more involvement from talented youngsters in the Isle.

Humberside Police Youth Engagement team is urging Isle schools to take part after very few youngsters from the area came forward to enter this year’s hugely popular Rock Challenge.

This year it will be held for the first time at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe with support from Clugston Construction and other partners.

Lisa Whitton, of Humberside Police said: “We are aiming to encourage more schools from the North Lincolnshire area to join us at the event, with a view to getting involved in 2016. We have already received plenty of interest from a number of local schools, who attended our information event last year. We are encouraging them, plus others to join us at this fantastic event, which offers young people so many positive and life challenging opportunities.

“These places are available on a first come first served basis. To secure a space to become involved in this phenomenal event, log onto “http://www.rockchallenge.co.uk” www.rockchallenge.co.uk and click ‘2015 Entry Form’.”

Last year, Rock Challenge attracted 3,019 pupils.
