The Big Chant 2019 Winners are Announced!

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS AND EVERYONE WHO TOOK PART!

In partnership with the Huddersfield Town Foundation, Musica Kirklees teachers and Kirklees class teachers have been working with pupils to create new football chants as a method of composition. The aim was to develop ideas with support from professional educators and to engage children in creative composition whilst supporting their local football team.

 

We’d like to say a huge 'THANK YOU' to The Huddersfield Town Foundation and all the teachers, schools and pupils who took part and created some very catchy compositions!


Over 2100 pupils got involved with the composition process in dozens of schools across Kirklees. The adjudicators enjoyed receiving all the entries and all schools and pupils are able to download a certificate of participation HERE.

 

The 2019 winners are:

  • Year 3 – Highbank J I and N School
  • Year 4 – Crossley J and I Fields class 4JT
  • Year 5 – Marsden Junior School - *OVERALL WINNER*
  • Year 6 – Linthwaite Clough J I and EY School class 11U

 

Each year group winner will receive: a visit from Terry the Terrier, a signed football, their photo and chant on the club website, their chant printed in the matchday programme and on the clappers for the HTFC vs Watford match on April 20.

 

The overall winner will receive: a school visit from a First Team player, a photo to feature in the matchday programme (April 20 - HTFC vs Watford) and on the club website, a signed football from the Huddersfield Town First Team and their chant printed on matchday clappers.  In addition to these prizes, the overall winners will receive tickets for the Watford fixture on April 20.

 

Congratulations to everyone who took part!
