This is a long standing and well-loved part of the CPRE Hertfordshire calendar, in 2019 the theme was The Trees of Hertfordshire. The children were asked to think about trees; what they look like from a distance or close up, the ecosystems they support and how trees help to keep a balance in nature and the benefits they bring to health and wellbeing. The trees could be in the countryside, in their garden, school grounds or anywhere else. We hope this encourages children to enjoy the natural world through art

Each year we invite all the primary schools within Hertfordshire to enter this competition, if you would like your child to participate then we would encourage you to speak to your child’s teacher. Prizes are awarded at our Presentation Evening in October, held at County Hall in Hertford. Children and their parents are invited to join in the celebrations.

Winning artists receive gift vouchers and certificates for their work. The competition is sponsored and judged by CPRE member and artist Valerie Cansick. Over 800 entries were received making her job difficult but most enjoyable.   As in previous years, the standard was very high and art teachers should take credit for enabling children to produce such creative pieces of work.

We love including the children and their families in the presentation evening and they all enjoy coming to County Hall to receive their certificates and vouchers, which, this year, were presented by Kevin FitzGerald our Hon Director.

Heath Mount School, Watton-at-Stone took the prize for Overall Winning School, other winners came from Welwyn Garden City, Puckeridge, Saffron Green, Bushey, Welwyn and South Mymms
