Ready Scotland Photo Competition

Be prepared for bad weather and win prizes for your school! Take part in this competition to ensure you and your family are ready for winter.

Are you in P6?  Education Scotland is looking for your help to communicate the importance of being ready for an emergency by staying informed, having a grab-bag and looking out for neighbours.   

Send in a photograph that shows how Scotland is ready for winter - could be a dog in a high vis vest, weather signs or flood defences in your area.  In no more than 20 words provide a caption for your image that gets the winter safety message across clearly.   

Three winning schools will receive a wind-up radio for their own grab bags and a behind the scenes experience at their local Bauer network radio station. The Bauer network reaches over 25 million consumers and includes stations like heat, KISS, Magic and Absolute Radio, Forth 1, Clyde 1, Moray Firth, Northsound, Radio Tay, West FM and West Sound. Each school will be able to send 6 pupils to their local station to see what is involved in creating a radio show and will have the opportunity to try a few of the tricks of the trade.


Have a look at the supporting resources offered here, then take a photograph that shows how Scotland is Ready for Winter.  Each school should attach their top 5 entries in JPG format to an email and send them to: sde@keepscotlandbeautiful.org


Please include:

  • Name of school
  • Full name of pupil
  • Full name of class teacher
  • Caption describing the photo in no more than 20 words
