The new #wildlife competition is open to any school in Great Britain with primary-aged children. To enter, schools will need to use Digimap for Schools to create a map annotated with photos and text showing signs of wildlife around their school. Elaine Owen, OS Schools Sector Manager, said: “We are confident that the competition will appeal to schools and we are looking forward to seeing some amazing wildlife maps. Through Digimap for Schools children can quickly and easily record their findings. Our experience is that pupils find Digimap for Schools easy to use so I can’t wait to see all the competition entries.” Schools are being asked to submit their maps to Ordnance Survey. The maps will be judged by an expert panel with the lucky winning school bagging a visit from Steve Backshall, wildlife presenter, naturalist and all-around adventurer.
