Over the winter months, the Gibraltar Point Education Officers took their “Bug’s Life” assemblies to local primary schools. The assemblies were all about bugs, beetles and all things creepy-crawly, and how children can protect them. At the end of each assembly, the children were invited to take part in an art competition. For a chance to win a prize for their school, all they had to do was produce a piece of art about minibeasts.
Nine schools entered the competition with a total of 154 different pieces of art from individual drawings and paintings to class sculptures and mobiles. All of their artworks are on display at the visitor centre at Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve. Now it’s time for the public to vote!
The public will decide which school wins the competition by voting for their favourite piece of art. The winning school will receive a year’s membership of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust’s Wildlife Watch club, and the winning class from each age category (over 8 years and under 8 years) will win a wildlife bumper pack.
The Gibraltar Point visitor centre is open every day. Combine your visit to the art exhibition with a walk about the wild coast of Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve and take time to relax and enjoy delicious food and drink in The Point Café.
