Be The Ripple Effect Competition
Entries for our new Be The Ripple Effect Competition are now open!

Did you know that the average person uses 150 litres of water each day in England? Water remains a precious resource and is something that everyone can play a part in when it comes saving more water.

 

This is why we are inviting schools to get involved with our Be The Ripple Effect Competition so pupils can learn more about the water cycle and how they can help their families and communities to save more water. When we all make small changes to our water use, we can make big waves in protecting our precious water supply.

The live session will kick off Thursday 23 May at 10am

The live session will help your class kick off the competition, bringing the learning to life through a series of fun, interactive activities around water usage including curriculum-based learning around water. Over the course of 40 minutes there will also be some top tips on how to enter the competition and inspire your pupils to get started on their entries.

We’re asking schools to create an advert that shows the best way to save water in your local area. In return, our winner will get the opportunity to see their advert come to live through an outdoor digital display for their entire school and local community to see!

What should the advert entry include?

Your advert can take a variety of forms, for example:

  • video
  • poster
  • drawing

It needs to showcase your water saving tip(s) but in a fun and creative way!

 

The deadline to enter is Sunday 23 June 2024.
