School Competition

MEG felt it was important to encourage the thoughts of young people on climate change and their ideas for action, so we created a competition for 12 – 18 year olds with a £100 prize for the winner. The competition was run in early 2023 and publicised in the two secondary schools of Marlow, Sir William Borlase Grammar School and Great Marlow School.

The subject of the competition was: ”What do you think that you and the residents of Marlow and its organisations can do to help reduce the effects of climate change?” and students were invited to submit written responses of not more than 600 words.

The competition was won by Great Marlow School student, Isabella Murray and the £100 cheque was presented to her by Marlow Town Mayor, Richard Scott.
