Plastic Free Schools Design Competition
How cool would it be if your little ones could design their own beeswax wraps!!
We recently ran a fantastic competition with the Ashley C of E School to design their own Beeswax Wraps that they could then sell to raise funds for their school. It has gone so well we thought it would be crazy not to open this up to everyone. So if you know any Key Stage 2 teachers or have any children that are currently in a Key Stage 2 class (Primary school years 3 - 6) please let them know about this competition as we feel it is a great way to really engage our young ones with the current plastic crisis, get them to explore how we can make our own small changes to help make a difference and raise funds for their school.
How Does It Work?
We have tried to keep it as simple as possible;
Step 1 - Teachers download the information pack below and print out the design worksheet for their class
Step 2 - Children create their design using the design worksheet. We also have a Plastic Free Lesson Plan download so this could be used to create a wider lesson around plastic pollution.
Step 3 - The teacher sends all of the final designs to us, we will then create a short list of our favourites and send to Ashley C of E School Eco Council Team to decide on the final winner.
Step 4 - We will create 51 Small Kitchen Packs (1 Medium wrap, 1 Small wrap). 1 Small Kitchen Pack will be given to the winning designer and the 50 will be donated to the winning school. They can then sell these packs to raise funds for their school. The RRP for our Small Kitchen Packs is £10 so we would hope from the sale you would raise £500 in total.
We hope this all makes sense but please contact us if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
