Scarf 2017 Calendar Competition Launched

September 14th, 2016


Primary school pupils across the north east have been invited to take part in our 2017 calendar competition.

The competition is open to all schools across the Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Angus Council, Dundee City Council, Moray Council and Perth & Kinross Council local authority areas.

Pupils are encouraged to create an A4 drawing, painting or colouring to demonstrate some of the simple things they can do to be energy efficient, reduce carbon emissions, and use gas safely.

The 2016 calendar attracted hundreds of fantastic entries from primary schools throughout the region and the quality of entries was of a very high standard – a real credit to all those who took part.

The 13 pupils, whose entries are selected for the calendar, will receive prizes that include their original drawing (framed), copies of the calendar and a retail voucher.

These will be presented to each of the winning pupils at what is anticipated to be a fantastic day out at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh later this year.

For the 10th year, the competition is being sponsored by National Grid.

Calum Johnston, Business Development Manager at Scarf, said:

“The Scarf Calendar Competition has become something of an institution and over the years it has given us a unique chance to engage with schools and communities across the north east.

“We would like to thank National Grid for sponsoring the event once again and wish all the participating schools and pupils the very best.”
