Children’s Wildlife Drawing Competition Launched

As part of The Wildlife Trusts’ national ‘every child wild’ campaign, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is delighted to launch an exciting drawing competition for children at the Idle Valley Rural Learning Centre, near Retford.

Leading up to the spring fair held at the centre on the Idle Valley Nature Reserve site managed by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, the Trust is requesting children aged between 4 and 16 to sharpen their pencils and get outdoors to discover their local wildlife for inspiration and ideas.

The competition will have three age categories, 4 – 7yrs, 8 – 11yrs and 12 – 16yrs. Two winners within each age category will be selected who will both receive a free bird feeder and seeds and have their original wild art displayed at the spring fair on April 10th 2016 held at the Idle Valley Nature Reserve.

All entries will be featured on-line for everyone to view and enjoy. The drawings could include subjects about wildlife children love, from trees to birds, badgers to snails, or from flowers to bees.

Entries should be original artwork, scanned or photographed and emailed to (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) before 31st March 2016. Image files should be kept to below 3mb.

It is requested that the child artists’ name, age and the title of their art work is included along with a contact name of an adult. Some original pictures will be requested if selected to show at the spring fair exhibition along with the winners.
