All primary-aged school children are invited to design a poster showing their favourite part of the borough, somewhere they are really proud of; this could be a park, their street or the place they most like.
The aim is to celebrate what’s great about the area; highlighting that any littering, even if it’s dropping a sweet wrapper, is unacceptable.
The competition is open to three age categories, 4-6, 7-9 and 10-11 year olds, with prizes kindly donated by council contractors, Continental Landscapes, responsible for keeping the borough’s streets and town centres clean and tidy.
The winning entries will be turned into posters and displayed across the whole borough, as well as appearing in Brightside, the council’s magazine.
First prize winners will receive a £20 book voucher, with the second and third prize winners receiving a £10 book voucher. The schools of the winning pupils will each receive £200 to spend on an activity which supports the aims of the campaign.
Young people can enter the competition via their school (if their child’s school is taking part), otherwise entries can be submitted online. Find out more and enter via the competition webpage - http://www.wandsworth.gov.uk/mywandsworth_competition
Primary schools wanting to take part in the competition can email firstname.lastname@example.org and the council will provide entry forms for all pupils.
