SECONDARY schools across Dundee and Angus are reminded to send in their entries for the ScottishPower Green Energy Trust’s Eco Editors competition as the closing date quickly approaches.
The Green Energy Trust’s Eco Editors contest is an innovative writing and environmental project for pupils which gives eco-conscious schools the opportunity to produce two pages of content for ScottishPower’s ‘Green’ magazine and win £500 to spend on a school environmental project.
The aim of the competition is to encourage awareness amongst school pupils about environmental issues and green projects. The budding journalists taking part in the 2012 ‘Eco Editors’ are challenged to write about ongoing ‘green’ projects at their school or tell the Trust about inspirational eco-friendly activities that other pupils can put into practice.
In order to become an ‘Eco Editor,’ simply tell The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust in not more than 300 words, your experience or suggestions which schools across the UK could implement to help save the planet.
ScottishPower’s Green magazine highlights green issues and projects which are highly relevant in today’s society. In addition to securing £500, the winning school’s pupils will be able to see their contribution in print in the autumn/winter edition of the magazine.
The Green Energy Trust is funded by ScottishPower customers who subscribe to the Green tariff with the company.
All schools taking part in ‘Eco Editors’ should submit their entries to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, June 1.
