RACING THROUGH THE RECORDS (Archives Awareness Campaign 2012)
Released on 22/08/2012
Scotland, dust off your lycra and dig out those trainers!
Last year’s Archives Awareness Campaign theme led to the development of the hugely successful Edible Archive. But now it’s time to burn off that slice of Locust Bread with 2012’s Sports, Games and the Olympics.
To celebrate the nation’s sporting heritage and to promote the variety and richness of Scotland’s archives and records, we have created 'Racing Through The Records'. Download the PDF document below which features a number of fantastic sports-related images.
We have introduced a competitive edge to this year’s project. We encourage you to vote for your winning item. Further details are contained in the document below, but simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and chosen item (voting closes at midnight on Sunday 26 August 2012).
We have some brilliant prizes lined up for a lucky voter and for the winning archive service; VIP tickets to one of Scotland’s most renowned ‘gaming’ events – the world famous Braemar Highland Gathering!
