We are proud to launch our creative composting challenge!
This competition is open to all school aged children (ages 4-16) living in Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.


Composting is an easy way to reduce our waste and help out our planet.

Did you know, composting at home for just one year can save global warming gases equivalent to all the CO2 your kettle produces annually, or your washing machine produces in three months?

We want you to help us promote this and get more people to compost- and we want you to be as creative as possible.
It can be a drawing, a story, a poem, a play, a vlog, an animation, building a model….or wherever your imagination takes you.

There will be nine prizes available each worth £100.

If you’re in Scouting or Guides the Creative Composting challenge could contribute to some of your badges such as:
• Beavers – skills challenge or creative activity badge
• Cubs – skills challenge or artist activity badge
• Scouts – creative challenge
• Explorers – creative arts activity badge
• Rainbows – Drawing, nature, recycling, storyteller
• Brownies – Painting, performing, zero waste
• Guides – Campaigning, photography, vlogging, upcycling
• Rangers – Animation, blogging, volunteering
