We’re encouraging P7 pupils to go on an energy saving trip

A group of school children leap into the air.
Maine Integrated Primary School, Randalstown pupils were jumping for joy at the chance to win such fantastic prizes.

We are giving away a free trip to W5 in Belfast and cash prizes worth up to £500 as part of our ‘Design an eco-home’ art competition for primary seven pupils.

The competition asks P7 pupils across Northern Ireland to design a home that is energy efficient and environmentally friendly.

There are fantastic prizes up for grabs, including awards of £500, £250 and £150 for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed classes. These three winning Primary 7 classes will also be taken on a special trip to W5 in Belfast.

Robert Clements, our Sustainable Development Manager said:

“As the Home Energy Conservation Authority for Northern Ireland, we want to encourage young people to take steps to make their home more energy efficient and help their parents or guardians save money on their energy bills.

“Through this competition we want to engage with school children and harness their creative skills to promote the benefits of energy efficiency in the home. Each school has already been sent an application pack to get them started so now it’s over to the budding designers to showcase their work!”

All schools should complete their application pack for the competition before May 31st. The panel, which is made up of Housing Executive staff, will notify the finalists shortly after the competition closes.
