The competition is run by the council along with educational platform, Earth Cubs and Enable, the contractor which manages Wandsworth’s parks and open spaces on behalf of the council. 

Local children can enter the drawing competition by colouring in the Park Litter sheet and help all the Parky Pigeons find all the litter.

The more colour the better and the judging panel will also look for lots of neat colouring in, in between the lines – so pencil, crayon or felt tip is preferred, and pencil will no doubt give the neatest results.

A scanned copy of your child’s entry should be emailed to mywandsworth@wandsworth.gov.uk along with your child’s name, age and school (if they go to school). A PDF or JPEG is fine – as is a picture of the entry using your smartphone. (See terms and conditions below).

The competition will close on Friday 19 March at 5pm.

“This competition is a great way for young people to learn about the world and engage them in messages about keeping their local area clean and tidy in a fun way.

“The Earth Cubs’ website and app are also a great way for kids to learn about climate change, an issue which is of great importance to the council, as we have an ambition to become a carbon-neutral organisation by 2030 and a zero-carbon one by 2050.”
