The Bailiwick School EcoChallenge 2019

What's it all about?

The EcoChallenge 2019 is open to all schools within the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
Working in teams of two, three or four pupils, your Challenge is to consider one major project or a few smaller ways you could improve your schools environmental sustainability.

The teams

There are three team categories: 6-8 years, 9-12 years, 13-16 years.

Category 6-8 years:

Your challenge is to put forward a practical (physical way) or more creative idea to improve your schools environmental sustainability. Your entry should include a drawing of your idea, an explanation of how it works and how it will improve your schools environmental sustainability.


 Categories 9-12 and 13-16 years:

Your challenge is to create a plan of action as to how you can put your idea into practice. The idea can be practical or completely conceptual. Draw or model your design including supporting information to explain how it works and how it will improve your schools environmental sustainability.


 Prizes

There will be one winning team in each age category (no runners up) and each winning team will win £1,000 cash prize for their school to go towards implementing any eco-friendly initiatives.

Closing date for the competition is 30th October 2019.

EcoChallenge entries will be shortlisted and the judging panel will visit the shortlisted teams in age categories 9-12 and 13-16 for the teams to present their ideas in the week commencing 4th November. Shortlisted teams in age category 6-8 will be notified but will not be required to present their ideas.
The winning teams will be announced by 14th November.
