Polli:Nation "Art with a Message" Competition's winners
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Art competition and helped make it a success! Special congratulations to our five winners, we received fantastic entries and it was really difficult to choose winners for each category.
‘Pimp my park bench’ by Chewton Common Playgroup
Great transformation from an old park bench into the perfect place for pollinators! This bright bench will encourage insects into the garden and will also show parents and visitors how easy it can be.
‘Buzz’ by Woodside Primary School
A fantastic colourful fence made of recycled materials to tell everybody about the pollination project and generate a ‘bit of a buzz’ about it! Much good work was done involving different helpers, including children, parents and other community members.
‘If bees starve we starve’ by Petersfield School
An amazing artwork compound of oversized bees, bee-friendly planting in hexagonal beds and elements which raise awareness about the effects of pesticides on bees and humanity. A wake-up call to the school and the wider community for questioning the values of our consumer society and confronting the situation that pollinators are facing.
‘Increasing the bee population in the North East’ by Prudhoe Community High School
A clever way of sending an important message about pollination all over the world. This funny video was designed to raise awareness of the plight of bees due to the use of pesticides and the necessity of planting more bee-friendly species.
‘Pollinator Promise’ by Saint Alban’s Church of England
Multiple ideas blended together to create a great concept piece. With their catchy slogan “Metre by metre let people know, metre by metre let pollinators grow!” They want to encourage true promises from their community to grow the right plants and realise that pollinators are an essential part of our environment.
