Here’s a story about how we’re doing our bit as responsible parents to help you to keep the cherubs occupied during the long summer holiday…
Ethical Hull company Bio-D has launched a competition to encourage children to consider the environment.
The Sutton Fields based business is inviting primary and secondary school pupils to write or draw about what saving the environment means to them and the winning submissions will win a year’s subscription to National Geographic Kids magazine.
Of the initiative, Bio-D’s Sales and Marketing Director Sara Holtby said; “We had such a positive response to the workshop that we did on the same theme for Hornsea School’s Green Day that we thought that we’d roll it out as a summer holiday competition.”
To enter the competition, all that the children have to do is a piece of writing or draw a picture that answers the question “What does environmentally friendly mean and why does it matter?” and send it with their name, address, age and parent’s permission to The Bio-D Company, Unit 5A, Bergen Way, Hull, HU7 0YQ or e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be one first prize for 12 and under and one for 12 and over and 10 runners up prizes. The closing date is the 3rd September.
We look forward to being inundated with your entries! Have fun!
