Pupils invited to enter eco editors contest

Borders secondary schools are being encouraged to enter an innovative writing and environmental project.

The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust’s Eco Editors competition 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 contest aims to encourage awareness 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 that schools across the UK could implement to help save the planet.

The winning school’s pupils will be able to see their contribution in print in the autumn/winter edition of the magazine.

All schools taking part in ‘Eco Editors’ should submit their entries to kirstin.aitken@bigpartnership.co.uk or Kirstin Aitken, The BIG Partnership, 5 Park Circus Place, Glasgow, G3 6AH, no later than Friday, June 1, 2012.
