CREATIVE youngsters from Earlsdon Primary School have made it through to the final 10 of a national competition which challenges five to 11-year-olds to make a piece of art out of recycled plastic bottle tops.
The school – the only one in the Midlands to be shortlisted – now needs Coventry Observer readers’ help to vote for their eye-catching design.
Composite Prime, which has teamed up with the National Schools Partnership to run the competition, builds resources for schools across the UK to inspire key stage one and two children to consider the amount of plastic waste being leaked into the environment.
Participating schools were encouraged to take part in a competition to collect and repurpose their own bottle tops into beautiful art murals and sculptures; showcasing the creatures they’d love to protect from plastic pollution.
To get into the top ten, Earlsdon Primary fought off competition from more than 200 other schools.
The winner – with the most votes – in the top ten will be awarded a playground makeover worth £5,000 and two runners will be presented with tablets worth over £100.
The winners will be announced on July 18.
