Kids Summer Poster Competition

Plastic Free Chesterfield is a volunteer, community-led campaign working to reduce single-use plastics across Chesterfield borough.

We have launched a kids Summer poster competition to help raise awareness about plastic pollution in the summer. We’re asking children 5-11 to create a poster to discourage the use of single-use plastic at summer time and stop its harmful impact on our planet. Children’s art creations must be submitted to us by Sunday 1st August, with winners selected by our flagship employer, CCS Media.

We have some excellent plastic free prizes, with a branded reusable water bottle for winners and a branded reusable tote bag for runners up, courtesy of our Plastic Free Champion, Personalised by Wibbz. We also hope to be able to display the winners posters at our Plastic Free Festival later in the year.
