Kids’ Model Boat Project
“At Home by the Lee”
Make a model boat at home from recycled materials – the theme is: ”At Home by the Lee”.
- There are three age categories 4-8yrs, 9-12yrs and 13-16yrs.
- There are prizes for best models and the project is free to enter.
- The closing date for participants is extended until May 15th 2020.
- You will need to send a picture or video of your creation to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The entrant/s will be placed in categories or levels, of which there are three, 4-8yrs 8-12yrs and 12-16yrs
- Special need categories will be created on the basis of interest by applications received.
Gift vouchers will be awarded to the firsts in each category. Certificates will be awarded to each participant. Prizes are kindly sponsored by Cllr Kieran McCarthy and will be posted out to the winning participants.
- The theme is “At home by the Lee”, which is open to interpretation.
- Models should be made from recycled materials. The nature of what kind of model boat should be made is up to you.
- As per previous years, we still hope to give your boat its maiden voyage at The Lough later this year so do test it in a sink or bath for floatability.
- All models should be photographed and emailed to email@example.com
- As we will be posting these up on social media please only submit photos of the boats (not the boat builders) and we will only use first names, age and area on our posts.
- There are no restrictions on the size of the model.
- Prizes will be awarded to models that are of a high standard and in particular, which demonstrate colour, creativity and imagination.
- Photos will go up on appropriate social media under hashtags: #creativityathome #athomebythelee.
- You will be contacted by email if you have won a prize and look forward to seeing you at our Model Boat event at The Lough later this year (date to be confirmed).
Good luck to everyone!
