Go Ape is encouraging schools to get creative in and outside the classroom by entering its writing and drawing competition.

Go Ape Junior course

Go Ape has several outdoor adventure sites across the UK. 

Back for its third year, the adventure company launched the competition on World Book Day (7th March) and schools have until Thursday, 4th April to enter. 

The competition aims to inspire creativity among students and will reward winners with prizes for themselves and their schools.

Entering the competition

Children are encouraged to write or draw about an adventure they have been on, or where their imagination has taken them.

Entries are split into two categories: 4 - 7 year olds and 8 - 12 year olds. The competition also has two options - a writing challenge or a drawing challenge.

Entrants to the writing competition must submit a story of between 100-150 words and those entering the drawing competition must submit an A4 picture or storyboard of an adventure.

To enter, visit www.goape.co.uk/adventure-stories and complete the form on the page.

The competition will shortlist two winners for each age category and for both the writing and drawing challenges. Winners will receive an adventure box containing a family ticket to Go Ape plus some books or drawing equipment.

An overall winner for each category will be chosen and they will win a micro scooter for themselves.

The winning children will also win a bundle of books for their class and a class trip to Go Ape for their groups, this will include the cost of the coach trip too.
