A sustainable charity has announced a competition for secondary schools across the country to win £10,000 to spend on going green.

The ScottishPower Green Energy Trust is calling on pupils in England, Scotland and Wales to submit their ‘Big Green Dream’ in the form of drawings, videos, collages, paintings or poetry.

The charity will choose a winning school to receive the top prize of £10,000 to make their dream a reality – this could involve installing solar panels, mini wind turbines or a range of other low carbon energy options.

Four runners-up will receive £5,000 and eight more schools will receive £1,000.

Alison McKean, a Trustee of the ScottishPower Green Energy Trust, said: “Since 2000, the Green Energy Trust has supported 154 renewables projects across the UK.

“We’re proud to have played our part in supporting the expansion of community renewable energy across the country.”
