Green primary school awards

Green fingered primary schools can win up to £5,000 to go towards new green initiatives through a competition set up by WWF.

Open to schools across the country, the WWF Green Ambassador School Awards is searching for primaries who put the environment at the forefront of their curriculum.

The winner will be awarded £5,000 and two runners-up will win £2,500 each.

“I think it’s great that schools with “green teams” can be recognised and rewarded for their green projects,” said supporter of WWF and CBBC presenter Ceallach Spellman.

“Has your school created a wildlife garden to encourage wildlife in the school grounds, or have found a brilliant way to save energy? Whatever your school is doing to help to take care of the environment, we want to hear it.”

The closing date for school entries is 15 April 2015.

Shortlisted schools will be notified in May and a ceremony for winners will take place at the Living Planet Centre in Woking in July.
