Exclusive Earth Hour Parliamentary Reception
On Tuesday 28th February, the winning pupils from the WWF Earth Hour ‘The Future We Want’ competition attended an exclusive Earth Hour Parliamentary Reception, hosted by the Rt Hon Dame Caroline Spelman MP DBE, and where triple Olympic gold medallist, Andrew Triggs Hodge, presented them with their prizes, which included £500 for their school to spend on an environmental project.
The competition was open to schools around the UK and invited pupils to share their visions of ‘The Future We Want’ in the form of a poster, poem or letter to the Prime Minister. The competition had two age categories: KS2 (7-11) and KS3 (11-14).
Congratulations to all our winners!
As well as celebrating the winners of the school competition, the Earth Hour Parliamentary Reception also saw winners of the Earth Hour Hero award celebrated. The event was also attended by MPs from around the country showing their support for Earth Hour ahead of the UK Government’s expected 25 Year Environment Plan.
