Teens go green to win contest

Have your say

TEENAGERS at Sheffield High School have been crowned the UK’s top ‘green-agers’ after creating an eco-friendly scheme.

A national competition asked school pupils to devise a group activity that inspired their fellow teens’ sense of adventure, encouraging them to put gadgets down and have fun in the great outdoors.

Sheffield High School’s nature garden and bee conservation project impressed the judging panel with its use of team work and involvement of the entire school.

The pupils set up a school-wide scheme to encourage pupils to continue their good work at home and plant bee-friendly plants in their own gardens.

They will now take part in a survival masterclass with Ray Mears in the Lake District next month.
