We are inviting Oxfordshire primary school children to enter our art competition. The competition will give pupils the chance to get creative and learn more about what is happening locally to encourage cleaner transport.
Winning entries will be displayed at the opening of the UK’s largest electric vehicle charging hub, at Redbridge Park & Ride, early next year. The site will feature 38 chargers, from fast to ultra-rapid, so that drivers can charge and be on their way in minutes, or while they use the Park & Ride to visit Oxford city centre.
With road transport accounting for nearly a third of greenhouse gas emissions (DfT, 2021) and contributing to harmful air pollution, electric vehicles are an important part of the transition to a cleaner future. We have created lots of learning resources to help schools and students learn more about the climate emergency and how Energy Superhub Oxford is helping to reduce carbon emissions.
We want students to create a bold, eye-catching picture on the theme of electric vehicles (remember there are e-bikes, vans, cars, buses…Oxford even has an electric bin lorry!). You could show how vehicles charge, why they’re good for people and the planet, or what you think electric vehicles of the future might look like. All we ask is that you get creative!
In each age group, a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be selected by the judging panel. All three winning posters from each age group will be displayed at the opening of the superhub at Redbridge Park & Ride in Spring 2022.
Reception to Year 3
In addition, every school that enters the competition will be entered into a draw for a School Prize of £400 towards IT equipment.
If your school is interested in participating please contact Millie Pardoe on email@example.com or call 07807 473761.
A member of the Energy Superhub Oxford team will collect each participating school’s entries on or before 14th January. Entries can also be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before this date.
