Please forward to anyone who might be interested:

Get Creative: They are looking for imaginative ideas that raise awareness about the importance of UK native wild flowers and plants using visual art or music, poetry and dance. Winning applicants will receive £500 to produce their creative artwork or to record their audio performance, plus the chance to exhibit or perform it outdoors at a high profile UK summer event.

Transform a Space: They’re looking for project ideas that raise awareness about the importance of native wild flowers and plants and their diverse habitats. Your project can involve more than sowing and growing – as long as it communicates a message about UK native wild flowers and wild spaces in a creative way. Think wild, innovative and eye catching!

You can apply here.

A panel of young people will be judging all entries from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Grow Wild is working together with the British Youth Council, Youth Cymru, Northern Ireland Youth Forum and Scottish Youth Parliament.
