A writing competition is being launched to provide a creative outlet for schoolchildren during the coronavirus crisis.
The Devon branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has launched the children’s competition in key stage 1 and 2.
Children are urged to use their imagination to create a piece of artwork or a short piece of writing about Devon’s coast or countryside, or a favourite spot that’s important to them.
The competition opens on Monday, May 18, and the closing date for entries is June 30.
A top prize will be awarded to individual children in each key stage, as well as to their school.

Winning schools will receive a plaque and £200 to spend on outdoor learning as well as CPRE membership for a year.
