Exciting environmental competition for young change-makers
Do you have a passion for our planet, an affection for our animals, and a natural love for nature?
There’s no greater feeling than doing something good for our planet. And a new, whole-group initiative is pretty exciting, too!
Take part in our creative ‘Save our Wildlife’ competition this August, and your young environmentalists can raise their voices, save our planet, and win some incredible prizes.
Get involved in the 2021 Save our Wildlife Youth Arts Competition!
We are pleased to announce that our first Save our Wildlife arts competition is open to all home educators and youth groups.
Submissions are accepted in most art forms – let your imagination run WILD!
