Competition Winners 2017-18
We had over 600 entries this year! There were 3 different categories and school awards too.
Infographic Workshop Category.
The fantastic infographic entries were made during a short workshop. These workshops were delivered for free in schools, libraries, youth groups and events around North West London. Infographics are visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly.
The students were challenged to make an infographic exploring the topic of Biodiversity. Biodiversity is in the KS3 curriculum and is a hot topic globally. Scientists are concerned that Biodiversity is declining.
It was incredible what the finalists managed to achieve in such a short space of time! Not only did they get to grips with a new app on an iPad — but many of them were learning about Biodiversity for the first time as well. Congratulations to all the finalists!

Street Art Workshop Category
The Street Art pieces were created in short workshops. The workshops were delivered in schools, libraries, youth groups and at events around North West London between September 2017 and January 2018. Street art is a form of artwork that is displayed in a community on its surrounding buildings, streets, and other publicly viewed surfaces. Lots of street art is created with an important message for society.
In the workshops, students were challenged to design a piece of street art to show the importance of pollinators and how we, as humans, depend on pollinators to provide us with food. These ideas feature in the curriculum for KS3 students.
Many students worked in group of three to create these fantastic pieces - this required team work, communication skills, science knowledge and creativity! Well done to all the Street Art finalists!

Unique Entry Category
The brief for the competition is very open. Students explore any topic linked to Ecosystem or Evolution that they are interested in. This could be extinction, natural selection, variation, species, human food security, Charles Darwin, biodiversity, ecosystems, seed banks, bioaccumulation etc. They can also get creative in anyway they like! From videos, songs, poems, short stories, paintings etc.
These unique entry pieces were created in the students own time—not during one of the workshops that we run. Some were created at home and others in lunch time or after school clubs. Lots of time, energy and effort has gone into creating these remarkable entries. Some have obviously spent time researching their topics and many have shown real talent and skill in what they have created.
From a rap about evolution to a pop up book exploring the extinction of the Dinosaur—there is a lot of interesting and very creative pieces here for you to enjoy!
