Green Pencil Award winners at the Scottish Seabird Centre

For the final prize for the 2014 Green Pencil Award – Scotland’s Seas, 18 of our 20 winners joined us on a trip to the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick.

We spent 5 hours at the centre exploring the indoor fish tanks, getting to hold a starfish, watching gannets on the Bass Rock on the live cams (we were even able to see a peregrine) following an adventure gannet trail, watching 3D films and banishing ‘rubbish’ from an interactive environmental floor display.

Taking full advantage of the glorious weather we ventured out onto the beach after lunch, where the children were split up into teams and had to salvage treasures including driftwood, sea glass and something smelly!

Once everything had been collected they then had to make a sand picture out of what they’d found.

It was a fascinating and fun filled end to last year’s Green Pencil Award and we’d like to congratulate all our winners one final time. You can see more photos from the day on Flickr.

The theme for this year will be announced in August.
