To take part in the Better Energy School Awards, first you need to register your school. Please complete as much information as you can. It doesn't matter if you're not completely sure about what your project will be called or exactly how many children will take part in it at this early stage.
Please keep a note of the password you have chosen, as you will need this when you submit your entry.Enter your school
The Awards' four categories give opportunities to study the environment in most areas of the Curriculum. Take a look at the categories below and decide which one suits your project best. You can enter the same project(s) into several categories if you wish. You don't need to worry too much about your category choice, as in the event that we consider you have chosen the wrong category for your project, we will reassign it, but only if this would be advantageous to your entry.
The Awards are open to all primary schools in England, Scotland and Wales. Any work you are doing at your school, with an environmental focus, can be entered. You can even submit work children did at home under lockdown during the summer term of 2020.
Please note that the main priority when judging project entries is that they contain examples of the students' own work. This can be presented in a range of ways including written work, artwork, photographs, a PowerPoint presentation and/or a video.
If your school has undertaken a range of environmental work during the year, we would recommend that you attempt to amalgamate it into one or two strong entries, rather than a large number of separate entries.
When your entry is ready, you need to log into your school's account on the Better Energy School Awards website using your email address and the password you chose when you registered your school's entry. You can upload all of your project files to us for judging.
Alternatively if you prefer, you can post the work to us using FREEPOST. When you log into your school's account, you'll find a "I need to post materials" button, click this if you are posting us materials. You will find the address and all the details you'll need to post us your project.
PLEASE NOTE: Deadline for receipt of entries is 10.00am pm 4 May 2021.Submit Your Entry
