This week Edinburgh’s Green Pencil Award – a writing competition for primary children in the city – launched its 2015 competition and focus on the theme ‘Food for thought: Scotland’s Food and Drink’.
The Green Pencil Award is a creative writing competition with an environmental theme, held by Edinburgh City Libraries and Eco Schools 2015. It’s open to P4 – P7 pupils in Edinburgh.
With the food and drink theme, entrants could write a poem or story about a favourite meal, or a memorable Scottish picnic, a drink you love or hate or perhaps even invent a new Scottish food. You could think about the journey of a vegetable from being planted as a seed to ending up as part of a delicious, nutritious meal.
Read about the launch with author Vivian French and pupils from Carrick Knowe Primary School, or download details about the competition and how to enter. Good luck – Edible Edinburgh has donated Fairtrade Scotmid vouchers for the winners!
