Green Pencil Award
Green Pencil Award Competition
Our successful environmentally themed creative writing competition, open to all P4-P7s in Edinburgh is running again this year.
To tie in with 2013 being the Year of Natural Scotland the theme this year is ‘Scotland's wonderful weather?!’
We want to encourage pupils to write about the one aspect of the environment that really does affect everything in the natural world.
You may choose to write about the different types of weather and how the elements impact on our everyday lives, as well as thinking about how our weather shapes the landscape and affects Scottish wildlife…. plants, birds, insects and animals.
This year’s competition is now open and has a 11 October closing date with the final award ceremony taking place in Edinburgh Central Library on 29 November.
Find out more about last year’s competition on the next page.
Entry Information, including judging criteria, Curriculum Links, promotional poster and a link to last year’s brochure are available in the downloads section.
