Schools attending the Eco Summit in June are invited to submit their pupils Climate Change artwork to the E.Y.E. Project
The 9th Worthing & Adur Eco Summit takes place on 21st June 2016 at Davison CE High School for Girls who are kindly hosting the event this year. 250 pupils from 17 Primary and Secondary Schools from across Worthing & Adur will be taking part in a day of fun and interactive workshops. There will be a Key Note Speech from Head of Climate & Energy at WWF UK, and the theme of the day will be Climate Change.
To link in with the Climate Change theme we are running an art competition to inspire pupils to think about Climate Change. We are inviting attending Primary and Secondary schools to send their pupils Climate Change themed artwork, the best of which will be displayed at the event. This could involve the schools Art /Geography teachers who could incorporate the activity into a lesson, or this could be an ‘Eco Club’ activity.
There are no specific requirements and pupils are encouraged to draw/paint their own impressions of Climate Change and/or its effects. This could also include ‘awareness’ poster style entries. Member schools will automatically be entered into a competition with prizes for ‘Best Primary school entry’ and ‘Best Secondary school entry’. Non-member schools will be acknowledged with highly commended work.
Attending schools have until the May half term to send in their pupils artwork on A4/A3 paper. Entries should be clearly marked on the back with the name, age and school and sent to The E.Y.E. Project c/o Worthing High School, South Farm Road, Worthing, West Sussex, BN14 7AR.
After half term the entries will be judged by a team including E.Y.E. Project Committee Secretary Margaret Enstone who is the Senior Advisor of the Sustainability team at West Sussex County Council and The Ropetackle Arts Centre who are also hoping to hold an exhibtion of the artwork at The Ropetackle Arts Centre in the Autumn.
Many thanks to The Ropetackle Arts Centre for supporting the artwork competition.
