take part in our upcycling competition!

We’re calling on students to get creative for Waste Week and upcycle old gardening equipment and tools into something new!

The aim of the competition is to inspire people across the UK to attempt their own upcycling projects, rather than sending stuff to landfill.

Your finished object should be:

  • innovative and/ or easily replicated
  • you should be able to clearly see what the item was made from
  • designed to last (otherwise it could end up in landfill anyway)
  • Plus, please make sure that you consider health and safety.

    More details on how to submit your entry will follow in the new year…

The competition is open to all schools and groups that have signed up to take part in Waste Week 2017. Students aged 4-11 and 11-16 can enter. The entry form will open from the 1st February 2017 until the competition closing date of midnight on the 10th March 2017.

There are two age categories: 4-11 yrs and 11-16 yrs
Each category has a top prize of £300, with runners up prizes of 2 x £100 and 4 x £50 (All prizes will be in the form of Amazon vouchers). Plus, each entry will be placed into a draw to win a gardening voucher.

Take a look at our competition page for some inspiration and don’t forget to start collecting your old tools and gardening equipment now!
