Dear schools and partners of Picaro,

As part of our campaign for the environment this month, Picaro World is organising a competition for our partner schools.  Focusing on the theme of ‘Save the Planet’, we invite children between the ages of 5 to 12 years old to enter the competition. 

For children aged 5 to 8 years old, the focus is ‘Recycling’.

Children are invited to: (choose 1 from the list below)

·       make a poster showing what and how we can recycle the things we use

·       act out a role-play about needing to recycle things and why this is important (ask an adult to film this so we can see your play!)

·       write a poem about the importance of recycling

For children aged 9 to 12 years old, the focus is ‘Threats to our Planet’.

Children are invited to: (choose 1 from the list below)

·       make a poster showing the dangers our planet faces and what can be done to save the planet

·       film a short video about the threats to our planet and how we can save it

·       write a poem about the destruction of our planet and the ways in which we can minimise this


This competition can be entered solo or in a team of up to 4 children.

There will be one winner and two runners up per age group, as judged by 4 members of the Picaro World team.  The projects with the most votes in each age bracket will be the winners.  The 4 projects (2 in each age group) with the next highest number of votes will be the runners up. 


All students who entered the competition will receive an electronic certificate for entering the competition.
