MANCHESTER UNITED FOUNDATION SCHOOL'S COMPETITION

 
 
 

What a day! Thank you for joining us at Old Trafford for a day of workshops for the next generation of climate change campaigners. We’re looking forward to seeing the entries for the Business Canvas competition.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO

There is no minimum or maximum group size for completing the business canvas. The students need to use the problem that they brain stormed in the workshop on the 8th February, or a new problem, to create a plan of how they will campaign to tackle the issue. It can be displayed as creatively on the canvas as the students like, as long as it’s legible. The plan needs to implementable, as the winning canvas will receive a prize of £300 to help kick start their campaign.

 

HOW TO ENTER

You can either post you business canvas for the attention of Lindsay Smith to, WWF-UK, Living Planet Centre, Rufford House, Brewery Road, Woking. GU21 4LL; or scan and send a digital version to lsmith@wwf.org.uk with the subject line ‘Manchester United Foundation Show The Love Competition’.

Be sure to include a covering letter with each of the contributors names, ages and school, as well as the teachers name and contact email address and phone number.

 

WHAT DO WE WIN?

The winning school will receive £300 to implement their campaign plan to solve the problem described in their business canvas. As well as this, two students and one teacher are invited to attend the Green Heart Hero Awards in The Palace of Westminster, 5pm - 7pm, 13th March. Here your canvas will be on display for MPs to see and you’ll receive a special mention in the schools category announcement.

 

I HAVE QUESTIONS...
