Sustainable Travel Calendar Competition

The Sustainable Travel Team are inviting pupils and young people to create a piece of bespoke artwork to inspire others to get more active through healthier, environmentally greener journeys.

An example of this could be the positive changes you have made over the last few weeks with walking or cycling.

You may use any material (new or recycled) and any process, for example drawing, painting, printmaking, textiles, photography, computer aided design, collage or montage. Your artwork needs to be able to be photographed and suitable for an A4 picture frame.

All winning entries will be framed and showcased in a special art exhibition at County Hall, Northallerton.
