The Purpose of the ‘Design a Mat’ Competition in Schools
The ‘Design a Mat’ Competition aims to increase awareness in schools on environmental behaviours and carbon initiatives, working towards encouraging the younger generations to act and initiate change for a more sustainable, healthier environment.
To enter the competition, your school must already be a CPC member. It will run from October to November, 2021 and will be supported with a participation pack sharing full details of the competition. Further details will be announced on the Citron website in the coming weeks. Regular social activity will commence during October in the run up to the short-listing and final judging.
‘Design a Mat’ Competition in Secondary Schools
For secondary school years, students are required to design a recycled floor mat around the topic of environmental benefits and carbon initiatives. We know that today’s students are much more aware of issues such as discarded fishing nets damaging marine life and helping to reduce single use plastics in our seas. It is these topics that we will be asking the students to focus their design talents on.
‘Design a Mat’ Competition in Primary Schools
For primary school years, children are required to design a recycled floor mat around the topic of healthy eating and active living. This initiative is designed to support already prominent activities happening with schools and it is hoped the winning designs will be used in schools to further these causes.
