Young artists in Perth and Kinross are being urged to get creative by the GWCT.
The GWCT is again appealing to pupils to get creative and enter the annual GWCT schools’ art competition, which is now in its 14th year.
Pupils are encouraged to create a piece of art depicting a game or wildlife species from anywhere in the UK relevant to the Trust’s conservation work, giving loads of choice in terms of subject matter.
Sponsored by Blackadders and the Basil Death Trust, with prizes donated by Perth-based artist and sculptor Julian Jardine, the competition is supported by Perth and Kinross Council’s Education and Children’s Services and the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET).
Iona Laing, education and events officer for GWCT Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be launching this exciting project once again and look forward to celebrating the great talent from young people across Perth and Kinross.”
“The competition helps to engage youngsters with the valuable conservation work in which the Trust is involved, and with many species – not just game.
“Encouraging youngsters to enjoy the countryside and all that lives within it will enhance the long-term protection of game, wildlife and their habitats.”
Information packs have been sent out to all primary and secondary schools in Perth and Kinross.
