Worcester Bosch Children’s Art Competition

Who can enter? There are three age groups (0-6, 7-11 and 12-16 years old) so households can submit more than one entry increasing the chances of winning.

What do I need to do? To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is use your imagination to create a piece of hand-crafted art or to take a photograph that reflects the theme, ‘The Environment and the Home’. For example, a chimney with a bad cough, or a home which uses energy from purely natural sources. The only limit is your imagination.
