The Great Hay Art Competition Tackles Peak Oil

Primary schools in Hay-on-Wye, Clifford, Clyro, Glasbury and Llanigon were invited by Transition Hay-on-Wye to prepare pictures illustrating the Transition Network's vision of the future without cheap oil. The schools, teachers and children were excited by the possibility and prepared a total of 220 excellent entries! These were exhibited in the Butter Market, Hay-on-Wye, on Saturday 17th July. There were lots of proud parents and delighted children visiting the exhibition, and many tourists popped in to look around.

In the pictures children captured ideas about changes that may occur during their lives, and covered things like energy saving and generation, walking and cycling to school and work rather than using cars, growing food yourself or buying local produce, less flying, using water carefully, and manging waste by reducing re-using and recycling. The Transition Hay-on-Wye event organiser, Paul Graves, said "We'd like to congratulate all the children who took part, and their teachers, for making this a lively and happy event".

All pictures were entered into a competition. There were two winners, Beth Llewellin of Clifford school (for ages 4-6 years), and Eve Underhill, Llanigon school (for ages 7-11): their entries are shown.Paul also said "We do want to thank our judges, Sarah Putt and Graham Dawson, and the local shops who made generous contributions, 'Old Forest Arts' and 'Jones Home Hardware'; it was very good of them to give time and materials to make this a successful event".
