Calling all young green champions!
Enter today and you could win £6000* funding from Ecover
The Observer Ethical Awards in association with Ecover is calling on teachers, parents and youth group leaders to encourage their Young Green Champions to enter their world saving ideas into the Ecover Young Green Champions Award competition so that they have the chance to win £6000* funding from Ecover to help make them happen.
The Ecover Young Green Champions award is open to classmates, youth groups, friends and individuals who are under the age of 18 with ideas so good they’ll make everyone around them leap in the air with joy! Perhaps you know of a student already saving the world (or at least your local community or school) through their brilliant recycling scheme or a youth group rescuing wildlife or busting carbon footprints. If so, the judges want to hear about it, and more importantly what they plan to do with the prize money to really make a difference.
For all the enormous effort that you, as adults, put into making these projects work, there is a further reward: Nominate the project of the group you work with and encourage your Young Green Champions to enter and you could win a three night stay for a family of four at The Coppice Woodland in Hertfordshire with Sawday’s Canopy & Stars.
