East Hampshire District Council is running a children’s art competition to highlight the importance of biodiversity and emphasise the plight of disappearing wildlife.

To enter, young artists need to create a picture in any medium on one A4 sheet of paper of any endangered species in Britain.

Local artist and illustrator, Rachel Hudson, is to judge the competition.

Cllr Diana Tennyson said: “I hope the competition can help raise awareness for British wildlife put at risk by the loss and destruction of habitats and foraging areas.”

Winning entries will be displayed at Gilbert White’s House Museum in Selborne and at its Nature Festival. A year family museum entry pass will be awarded to each winner.

There are five age groups, 4 years and below, 5 to 7 years, 8 to 11 years, 12 to 15 years, and 16 to 18 years, and the closing date is Monday, September 23, and to enter, email a scanned copy or a high-quality picture of your entry to [email protected]
