What is the competition all about?
We would like the children in your school to illustrate a storyboard for the Young Vets Club magazine. The storyboard will focus on how wildlife tracking can help protect animals, through the true story of Matt the cheetah,
and how a tracking collar saved his life.
The winning entry will have their work illustrated professionally and published in our Young Vets Club magazine.
Why get involved?
Involving your students not only gives them the chance to demonstrate their creative skills but it will also raise their awareness of this important global animal welfare issue. The work is linked to UN Sustainability Goal 15, Life on Land, and is suitable for children at KS2 or the start of KS3.The competition looks at issues of sustainability with a global dimension and provides cross curricular links with Geography, Science, Art and Citizenship.
The competition can be completed as a club activity, in lessons, tutor time, or as homework.
