MY OUTDOORS 2018 – RESULTS!

CPRE Devon is delighted to announce the results of this year’s ‘My Outdoors’ competition for primary schoolchildren. We received entries from right across the county from girls and boys who had captured their favourite Devon landscape on paper.

The competition is a fun way to encourage outdoor learning and help young children engage with and enjoy the countryside. Pencils, paints and sticking paste were all put to use to create art works which captured the beauty and variety of Devon’s natural landscapes.

The judges were impressed with the children’s creativity and hard work. They had a hard task choosing between the entries!

Bishops Nympton Primary School near South Molton won ‘Best overall school’ and a prize of £200 towards outdoor learning. East Anstey Primary School on Exmoor and St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Buckfast were both highly commended, winning £50 each towards outdoor learning initiatives.

The individual winners were:
Key Stage 1 – Amelie Willis Smith, aged 5, from Holbeton Primary School. The judges loved her delightful collage The Beach.
Key Stage 2 – Ava Perkins, aged 8, from Clyst Heath Nursery and Community Primary School in Exeter. The judges were impressed by her painting entitled Dartmoor.

There were lots of commendations too for entries from Bishops Nympton, East Anstey, St. Mary’s in Buckfast, Holbeton and Exeter schools Willowbrook, Ladysmith, Wynstream and Clyst Heath.

Thank you to everyone who supported CPRE Devon by entering, and congratulations to all the winners!
