Dive into our Marine Litter Art Competition!

We are challenging pupils across the Clyde Valley to take part in our marine litter competition, to research the problem and come up with creative ways of sharing their findings.

The competition is part of the Upstream Battle campaign, aiming to raise awareness of the fact that 80% of marine litter starts life on land.  Pupils will research how litter in their community could end up as litter in the sea, by following the 'source to sea' pathway.

Successful entrants will be showcased across our social media channels, on our website and excitingly, in Upstream Battle exhibitions.

Anne-Marie Robb, Education and Learning Coordinator, said:

"Not only is the project an ideal opportunity for pupils to engage in learning outside the classroom and interdisciplinary learning, clear connections can also be found across the Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes. Schools undertaking their Eco-Schools Scotland journey may also wish to undertake the project as part of their work on the programme's Litter Topic.

"We've had great success running competitions like this in the past and have been astounded by the depth of understanding and creativity pupils have shown in their artwork.  We're looking forward to seeing all of the entries for this competition."

Resources, including a class presentation and teachers brief, are available to all participating schools.

This competition is open to early years, primary and additional supports needs establishments, as well as uniform or community groups working with this age group in the Clyde Valley area, covering eight local authorities: Glasgow, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire. Interested schools should submit their interest by 25th January. The closing date for entries is 15th March 2019.
