Why get involved?
Involving your students not only gives them the chance to demonstrate their creative skills but will also raise their awareness of this important global animal welfare issue.
The work can be used towards gaining accreditation for your Eco Schools awards under the Global Citizenship topic and towards the Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots Awards.
The work also links to KS2 and KS3 Geography Curriculum looking at issues of sustainability with a global dimension and provides cross curricular links with Science, Art and Citizenship. Additionally it covers UN Sustainability Goal 15 and Life on Land.
We would like the children in your school to illustrate a story board for our next kids magazine explaining how Ekari, a baby elephant in Myanmar, was rescued after being snared by poachers. The winning entry will have their work illustrated professionally and published in our summer 2020 magazine.
What is the competition all about?
Not only will the winner’s creation be published, but the student and their school will receive a framed copy of their work. To reward the efforts of as many children as possible we are also giving away
250 free memberships to our Young Vets Club
to the first 50 school entries we receive.
These will be valid for 1 year and are normally worth £30 each.)
Who can enter?
This is open to all students in Years 4 to Year 7. Both primary and Secondary Schools are invited to take part.
The competition can be completed as a club activity, in lessons, tutor time or as homework.
We will give you everything you need to launch the competition. This will include a power point to show the children which tells Ekari’s story and explains simply how the competition works. We will send templates that the children should draw on, notes for teachers and all other documentation.
Materials will be available to download from Monday 13th January 2020
All entries must reach us by Friday 24th July but get your entries in as early as possible to be in the top 50 schools.
