Edinburgh Green Pencil Award

Edinburgh City Council is running an environmentally themed creative writing competition, open to all P4-P7s in Edinburgh. To tie in with 2013 being the Year of Natural Scotland the theme this year is ‘Scotland’s wonderful weather!’

Pupils are being encouraged to write about the one aspect of the environment that really does affect everything in the natural world. They may choose to write about the different types of weather and how the elements impact on our everyday lives, as well as thinking about how our weather shapes the landscape and affects Scottish wildlife…. plants, birds, insects and animals.

Further information can be found on the council’s website.
