As each project is unique, we do not put many restrictions on how you should present or what to include in your project.
Some groups may have a song or recycled decorations and some may have photos of an area they cleaned up in their community or a poster competition they held in school to reduce energy wastage.
Please do not submit any 3D pieces: If you have 3D pieces, art/fashion pieces, decorations or large posters, photograph these pieces and submit the photos only, with your report. Clearly mark your registration number on the back of each photo. Groups should consider showing scale to give a true representation of their project.
Once submitted, projects cannot be returned to entrants, but will be available (on the day) for presentation at the ECO Dens and on the morning of the Showcase and Awards ceremony. Groups are advised to keep copies of all project materials for their presentation at the ECO-Dens and the Showcase and Awards ceremony.
