For the fourth year running, children at the borough’s schools are being urged to take part in the Wandsworth/GLL Heritage Awards for Schools competition.

The competition is aimed at Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 pupils. The winners of each category will secure up to a cash prize of £1,000 for their school.

There is a new element this year with a ‘design a poster’ competition. Entry deadline is 31st March 2018. The winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony and the poster will be used to publicise the 2019 competition.

The competition is designed to inspire greater knowledge of and interest in the borough's rich history and heritage, help young people develop a sense of place, and promote teamwork.

Cash prizes are sponsored by Greenwich Leisure Limited, a not-for-profit charitable social enterprise who run the council's Library and Heritage Services.

Awards ceremony

The prize money - along with specially designed medals and certificates - will be presented by the Mayor of Wandsworth at a special Town Hall Awards ceremony.

How to enter

The deadline for entry forms and attachments is Saturday 31st March 2018.
