Children paint the town green



The Cornwall-based nationwide provider of discounted loft and cavity wall insulation, the Heat Project, has launched a new competition to provide an insight into how the environment is perceived by children.

The Heat Project is inviting all children throughout the UK of ages 11 or under to submit a painting, drawing or photograph relating to the theme Our Planet, Our Future – what my environment means to me.

The winning picture will feature on the front cover of the Heat Project 2009 company Christmas card, and along with 11 runners up will form the Heat Project’s 2010 calendar.

Adrian Liddell, managing director at the Heat Project, commented: “Today more than ever children are becoming increasingly aware of the environment and its fragility; in fact we find it is often children who are more considerate of this than the adults!

“The intention of this competition is to offer a light hearted but educational insight into our next generation’s appreciation of our environment during the festive period, which is traditionally known for its excess; and with excess comes waste. We want to educate children, and their parents, about the importance of cutting such waste, including carbon emissions that can be reduced with effective insulation.”
