CPRE Hertfordshire is committed to the protection, promotion and enhancement of the environment within Hertfordshire, to make it a better place to live, work, go to school or enjoy for today and tomorrow.  As part of this, we run a Children’s Art Competition.  We invite all the primary schools within Hertfordshire to enter and to encourage the children to express themselves through art.   If you would like your child to participate then we would ask you to speak to your child’s teacher, a copy of the invitation sent to schools is attached to this post.

The theme this year is Trees of Hertfordshire.  This could cover what trees look like from a distance or close up; the ecosystems they support; how trees help to keep a balance in nature and the benefits they bring to health and wellbeing.

We are asking the schoolchildren to think about the trees they come into contact with; during countryside walks, in their garden, school grounds or anywhere else and to use research and observation to help them produce a piece of artwork which tells us about the tree.

The winning artists receive certificates and vouchers, and the school submitting the highest number of winning/commended entries will receive £100 in gift vouchers for their art department.

The winning pictures will be on display at our Awards Evening in October.  Winning artists, parents and teachers are invited to see the display and to be presented with their prizes.

Many thanks again to local artist Val Cansick who will sponsor and judge the competition again in 2019 and display the winning artwork on her website (www.artvalcansick.co.uk) after the final judging.

We love seeing the amazing artwork the children produce and engaging with them in a positive way as they are the future guardians of the Countryside.

Closing date for entries:  Monday 20 May
