Competitions for Schools

Get involved in our school art competition

Is your class arty and creative? Why not get involved in our school art competition for a chance to win an outreach education session for your class. We will visit the winning individual’s class for a fun afternoon of learning with live animals and artefacts! The theme for our art competition this year will be TIGERS!

Amur tigers are endangered. They live in forests of the Russian far east. Winters in their natural habitat are very cold and animals need to be well adapted for the change in temperature. Amur tigers are also known to swim which is uncommon for most cats. There are 2 tigers at Knowsley Safari, sisters Sinda and Bira.

Bira and Sinda

Art work can be created using any medium (paint, crayon, collage, digital) and should be submitted on paper.

The name, age, school and contact details should be written on the back of each picture, only 1 entry is allowed per child and unfortunately we will not be able to return submitted entries.

Entries can be dropped off at the park during your visit or posted to Ellie Sowerby, Learning and Discovery Team, Knowsley Safari, Prescot, Merseyside, L34 4AN.

We will judge the entries in age categories. Categories are under 5’s, 5-10 year olds and 10-15 year olds. The top entries from each category will get their pictures displayed at the park and the winning individual will receive a free outreach session for their class.
