Wild World Heroes Art Activist Competition

Wild World Heroes Art Activist Competition

This competition is now closed. We’ll be in touch with the creators of our favourite entries soon!

The Summer Reading Challenge this year is all about the environment and features a group young people who try to save their home town of Wilderville.

To celebrate we want you to create some art that inspires others to care about nature and the world around them.

The Challenge: Design a poster, one-page comic, or short video about an environmental topic that matters to you.

Who can enter?

You should be aged 14 or under and live in the Falkirk area. You don’t need to be a library member, but we’d love you to join (and it’s free)!

What should my entry be about?

Think of an environmental issue that you feel strongly about. For example:

  • An endangered animal
  • Plastic in the ocean
  • Littering in the countryside
  • Helping wildlife in your garden
  • Using less plastic

 

 

What format should my entry be in?

You can make one of the following:

  • A poster with a catchy headline, your own artwork and some information
  • A one-page comic
  • A short video (no more than 5 minutes long)

 

What should I do with my entry when I’m finished?

Get an adult to help you get your entry to us. Closing date is 4th September.

Posters and comics: Your adult can email your entry to Falkirklibraries@gmail.com or you can hand in the paper copy to your local library.

If you’re handing in a physical copy, make sure your name, age and contact details are on the back.

Videos: Email to falkirklibraries@gmail.com or upload to You Tube, Facebook, Vimeo etc. and send us the url link.

What information do you need about me?

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • Your school
  • Your parent/guardian’s email address and phone number

What will you do with my entry?

Our judging panel will pick their favourites and award some prizes. We’ll put as many of the entries as possible on our social media feeds to help you get your environmental message out there!

Prizes

Prizes for our favourite entries includes animal adoption from the WWF, a Waterstones gift card and animal-friendly books.
