To encourage all Lewes children, and their families, to become more aware of the Lewes Urban Arboretum Project, all primary-aged pupils at Lewes schools were invited to enter the Friends of Lewes Tree Competition during June and July 2014.
To take part in the competition, children were asked to create a picture, painting, poem, explanation or poster on the subject of: “I think trees are important to Lewes because……”. The prizes are a £10 Book Token for the winning pupil and a £50 Book Token and ten trees for the winning school. More competition details and entry forms were available from the participating schools or from below.
Completed entry forms and entries can be returned to the individual pupil’s school office or delivered to the Town Hall, marked “FoL School Trees Competition”. The closing date for all entries was Friday 18th July 2014 and the children’s responses are celebrated on our Facebook page, and via Flickr. The results will be announced on 11th September.
