Ten schools have made it to the final of the eagerly anticipated Message in a Bottle Top competition and judging is underway to decide on the overall winner.
Earlier this year, the Message in a Bottle Top initiative was launched in schools nationwide. Its aim was to encourage pupils aged 5-11 to learn about plastic waste and its impact on the environment. The cross curricular programme taught pupils the importance of reusing and recycling plastics and challenged them to create a mural or sculpture to depict creatures effected by it. The most creative and thought-provoking entry will win first prize; a playground makeover worth £5,000!
The competition received over 100 entries and judges were faced with the difficult decision of choosing ten finalists from the collection of innovative creations they received. Composite Prime will be independently judging the finalists but have shared their work on social media, encouraging the public to indicate who they think should win.
See below, the finalists for this year’s competition:
