Big Green Dream Competition

  • S1 & S2 pupils can enter the Big Green Dream competition and be in with a chance to win up to £10,000!

Pupils in secondary schools across Scotland can win up to £10,000 in the Big Green Dream competition.

The Scottish Power Green Energy Trust is calling on school pupils in S1-S2 to submit an environmentally friendly idea. Ideas could range from recycling initiatives to supporting the school eco group or installing a new wind turbine.

One school will receive the top prize of £10,000 to make their dream a reality.

Four runners up will receive £5,000 for their school and eight schools will receive £1,000.

Pupils can make creative entries such as drawings, videos, collages, poems or paintings.

The entries will be judged by the Scottish Power Green Energy Trust, an independent charity which helps community renewable energy projects get off the ground.

Funded entirely by donations from Scottish Power's Green Energy Fund customers, the Green Energy Trust has awarded over £1.6 million to more than 154 projects since it was first established in 2000.

The countdown is on for school pupils to share their Big Green Dream and show they have what it takes to design a brighter future for their school.

We're looking for ideas that will blow us away and support the school in being environmentally friendly for years to come.
