This year the competition is about climate change. This means entries can be about the causes of climate change or what we are doing to make things better.
We want you to create a picture or a short poem.
You can use the Scottish Government themes if you like to help you decide what you want to do. Your entry can be about one
key message for example ‘reduce waste – save tonnes of carbon’ or it can be about several things. Or, it can be to celebrate COP26 and what this means for the planet. The winning entries will be made into a video that will be launched the week leading up to Earth Hour. The entries will need to be emailed in this year so please consider the how you will do this.
