Living Waterways Poster Competition

We are inviting your school or youth group to take part in our exciting poster competition for our Living Waterways Project.*

This would be an ideal project for Eco Schools water topic, or for any class/ youth group wanting to do something positive for nature.

You will need to use the template provided on this page to create your posters and they must have a water wildlife theme with a positive message about stopping pollution in our becks and streams.

This could be-

  • Stopping litter
  • Stopping the dumping of chemicals in watercourses
  • Stopping people from pouring oils and solvents down highway gullies

Your poster should also include information on the correct way to dispose of litter/ chemicals to enforce a positive message.
