Found on the Ground
I am currently leading on the Packaging & Packaging Waste Regulation within the European Parliament, a file which I hope will reduce the amount of needless packaging being created in our world.
In order to highlight this, I’m holding an art competition for both individuals and groups of students titled “Found on the Ground”, where any sculpture or artform created must be made out of excessive packaging that has been gathered by the creator.
Primary School Students
For primary schools, the competition can be carried out by classes, or as individuals, with the top entry winning a fully paid school tour to a destination of their choice, within their region.
Secondary School Students
For secondary schools, the competition can be completed by individuals or a maximum group of 4 students. The winner(s) will be invited to visit the European Parliament in Brussels with their parent / guardian(s).
And those are all the rules - the rest is only limited by your imagination!
