BAT CONSERVATION IRELAND’S
The theme is: Best Bat-Themed Hallowe’en Decoration
We are asking all of our supporters (adults included!) to put their thinking caps on and make a bat inspired Hallowe’en decoration. This competition has a wide interpretation, so it could be anything from hanging decorations to a Hallowe’en display. Be as creative as you like (as long as it is an original piece of work) – the decoration can be made of any type of material, although as a conservation organisation we advocate for using recyclable materials – put those empty toilet rolls to good use! Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions, please take a photograph of your decoration and email it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date for entries is Sunday 1 November 2020. Winners will be announced on Monday 23 November 2020 and will be informed directly.
Prizes for the competition are as follows:
- First Prize: €40 voucher for the Art and Hobby Shop
- Second Prize: €30 voucher for Easons
- Third Prize: Learn About Bats T-Shirt
- First Prize: Bat Conservation Ireland Jacket
- Second Prize is: A copy of Irish Bats in the 21st Century
- Third Prize is: Bat Conservation Ireland Travel Mug
