Stevenson Congratulates SCARF School Calendar 2016 Winners

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP, Stewart Stevenson has congratulated two local students on their Scarf School Calendar Competition award.

Mr Stevenson attended the award ceremony in the Scottish Parliament where the event recognised winners of the Scarf School Calendar Competition. Among the winners were local students Robyn Wallace-Jamieson of Crossroads Primary School, Grange and Jake Watson of King Edward School, Banff, who won for their artistic submissions demonstrating how to be energy efficient and reduce carbon emissions.
The event was attended by winners from schools across Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire, Angus, Dundee City and Moray Council local authority areas and their parents. The 2016 calendar attracted hundreds of fantastic entries from primary schools throughout the region. A total of 14 pupils were selected for the calendar.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“I am very proud of my young constituents and for all those who took part in the calendar competition. They’ve created beautiful pictures that reflect creative solutions to saving energy and protecting our communities from climate change. As former minister for environment and climate change, I’m highly impressed by their work and participation.

“Both Robyn and Jake managed to create interesting, thought provoking art. They’ve clearly put a lot of work into their submissions and the calendar is lucky to have them. I would also like to congratulate all the young people who took part – their creativity, work ethic and awareness are the foundation for combating climate change and creating a world that’s more energy efficient.

“Well done to Scarf for hosting another great competition. They really are playing a key role in creating an energy aware culture among our young people. I’m glad they continue to inspire our young people and I wish them the best of luck for next year’s competition.”
