The inception of the Schools Litter Challenge arose from research conducted by Keep Britain Tidy, which highlighted a general ineffectiveness of litter prevention. Academies across Aberdeenshire were asked to take a creative and innovative approach and encourage their fellow students to reduce the amount of litter they create throughout the school day. Aberdeenshire Waste Team carefully assessed each entry and scores were given across a range of categories for effort, originality and effectiveness.
After careful consideration they chose the best three entrants with the follow results;
First Place: MINTLAW ACADEMY
Second Place: Banchory Academy
Third Place: Portlethen Academy
