Pupils can win Poppy Place in competition
Poppyscotland has launched its Learning Competition for 2017/18, calling on Scotland’s schools to explore the power of design as part of remembrance and reflection.
“Poppy Places and Spaces”is a design competition divided into two age groups – P4-P7 and S1-S3 –which has been inspired by the fact that 2018 is the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. It supports the question: ‘Why is it important to remember?’
Last year’s competition, which set pupils the task of writing a letter home from the front-line of battle, proved hugely popular throughout the country with more than 1000 entries submitted.
There will be one overall winner picked from a public vote of a shortlist of three in the primary school age category (P4-P7) and three in the secondary school age category (S1-S3). The overall winner will have the opportunity to build their Poppy Place or Space. This will be limited to a maximum cost budget of £1000. Runners-up will receive book tokens.
For more information on the competition, which runs until Friday, December 8, please visit www.poppyscotland.org. uk/learning, or telephone Derek Patrick on 0141 338 6587. Winners will be announced in April 2018.
