Back in May, PECT launched a Renewable Energy Art Competition to raise awareness about the importance of renewable energy, working alongside partner Cambridgeshire County Council.
“We were looking for primary-aged children to create artworks that illustrated how important it is to save carbon and energy,” said PECT’s Environment Education Lead Heidi Latronico-Ferris. “We all need to become smarter and more responsible with how we use precious natural resources, and this includes transitioning away from fossil fuels and onto cleaner forms of energy, such as from wind and sun.”
The team received some wonderful entries and is delighted to announce the winner and runners-up below! Prizes will be winging their way to them shortly.
Thomas, age 5, from Oakdale Primary School
Runner-up: Jimmy, age 8, from Westwood Primary School
Runner-up: Isabelle, age 5, from Oakdale Primary School
Runner-up: Grace, age 11, from Werrington Primary School
Cambridgeshire County Council’s vision is to deliver net zero carbon emissions for the region by 2050. As part of this overarching strategy, the Council has already successfully developed a schools’ energy programme and invested £11million into schools from across the county. It has also built a 12 MW solar park at Triangle Farm, Soham, which generates clean energy and has delivered over £350,000 per annum to support Council services such as adult social care.
