2019 Children’s Art Competition - Results

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

2019 saw another successful competition for CPRE Hertfordshire.  However, with over 800 pieces of individual artwork it was difficult to judge. The theme this year was “Trees of Hertfordshire” and the art teachers had interpreted this in many different ways.  Children sent artwork showing trees in the playground, bark rubbings, abstract trees and some with environmental messages, they were all pretty amazing.

Professional artist, Valerie Cansick, who judged the competition said:

“It has been a privilege and a pleasure to assist with the Children’s' Art Competition for CPRE Hertfordshire during the last few years and I would like to commend and thank all the art teachers, every single one, who so enthusiastically encouraged their pupils to participate. The children certainly did that.  

The imaginative collection of artwork always shows how much they take in about nature and the planet, there are many positive and poignant messages coming through loud and clear each year from all participants.”

The competition is open to all primary schools in Hertfordshire and entries are received from reception through to Year 6.  This year successful entries came from schools in Puckeridge, Bushey, Welwyn Garden City, Watton at Stone, Borehamwood, Welwyn and South Mymms.

Winning artists will be invited to collect their prizes at the CPRE Hertfordshire Awards Evening which is held in October at County Hall, Hertford.
