The Woodland Trust [WT] is launching a new Charter in 2017 that will set out how woods, trees and people should benefit each other in the future.
To celebrate this event it is introducing a Tree Champion Challenge which is worth two Green Tree Schools Award points.
This challenge involves creating a woodland character, or champion, that will be used to promote the new Charter.
This is how it works:
- Use WT’s online resources below to get pupils thinking imaginatively and ask them to create their very own Tree Champion.
- Hold a competition in school and select the best Tree Cham
pion to represent your school at each Key Stage
- Submit your entry by entering your champion online and submitting the winning champion for each Key Stage. Follow the instructions on the form for sending a scan or photo of the worksheet featuring the illustration.
If your school is not already signed up to the Green Trees Schools Award, find out more, and register.
