All entries into the competition, which is open to primary and secondary aged children, will be on display on the grounds during the February half-term event for visitors to vote on.
The winning entry will get a free visit to Hever Castle and Gardens for their class. The sculptures need to be made out of any sustainable material and the theme can reflect anything historic, for example, a person or place, or a particular event. The structures should be freestanding, measure between 3ft and 6ft high and fairly hardy to the temperamental British weather! The completed models will need to be delivered to Hever Castle between Monday 29th January and Wednesday 7th February. Voting will take place from Saturday 10th February and the winner will be announced on Tuesday 27th February.
Those interested in taking part should contact Harriet Waldron at: email@example.com
Visitors to the Feb half-term event can also take part in a fun eco-craft activity as well as wander around the grounds to find out more about what Hever Castle, rated silver for green tourism, does to be environmentally friendly. Yuki Solle, the founder of Cultivate the Life lifestyle blog will be sharing tips on how to reduce food waste and eat well on a budget. She will be running free workshops (included in admission price) on how to turn an old t-shirt into a bag (feel free to bring along an old t-shirt) or how to make beeswax candles (Saturday 10th February), how to make a conker laundry pouch or a bird feeder (Thursday 15th February), make a dishcloth from old tights, socks or leggings or a stick photo frame (Friday 16th February), an egg carton herb planter or a coffee body scrub (Saturday 17th February).
