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. 

All Primary Schools in Hertfordshire are sent an invitation and we are asking the schoolchildren to think about one of the themes and to produce a piece of artwork.  If your child is still at school they may be able to take part whilst they are there.  If your child is at home you can enter by following the terms below.



  1. Entrants are asked to create a piece of A4 artwork in any medium, providing it is original artwork (no computer generated images, please)
  2. Original artwork should NOT be posted to CPRE Herts.  Please scan or take a photo of the original artwork and attach it to an email – send to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  (either a maximum or 30 if being sent by the school or parents can email their child’s picture direct).  Maximum size 2MB please.
  3. Each entry/email should be clearly marked with the entrant’s name, age, school year and school and should be the work of one entrant only.
  4. This year's theme is either My Favourite Walk in Hertfordshire or What I Can See through My Window
  5. There are three age groups: Years 0/2, Years 3/4 and years 5/6.
  6. Prizes: Certificates and vouchers for all winners.  The school submitting the highest number of commended/winning entries will receive £100 in gift vouchers to spend on art and craft materials.
  7. All prize-winning entries will be displayed at the CPRE Hertfordshire Awards Evening in October.
  8. All prize-winners will be invited to attend the Awards Evening to see the display and to be presented with their prizes. Photos will be taken and may be used for publicity purposes. 
  9. Our judge, local artist Val Cansick, will display winning artwork on her Facebook page, Val Cansick Studio, until Christmas 2020.
  10. Emails to arrive by no later than Friday 12 June 2020.
