A pupil at a Clackmannanshire School is celebrating their win in a UK wide design competition. 

Chloe, aged 6, from Muckhart Primary School, entered the WOW badge design competition from Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.

Over 90,000 primary school pupils nationwide entered the competition, with nine winners being chosen by a panel of experts from the Design Council. 

This year’s badge competition theme was ‘Walk for the World’, with pupils asked to consider the contribution that traffic pollution makes to carbon emissions and to research and draw wildlife or a natural habitat affected by climate change. Winning designs include an orangutan, polar bear, toucan and an American Pika. 

The winning designs will now be turned into more than 300,000 badges to be awarded to pupils across Scotland, England and Wales taking part in WOW – the walk to school challenge. 

Chloe was joined by her parents, grandparents, and two younger sisters, Rosa and Megan, as she was presented with her prize outside Muckhart primary.

Stephen Edwards, Interim CEO, Living Streets said:  

“WOW is a great way to help keep children healthy and happy by encouraging them to be active every day. More children walking to school also means fewer cars around the school gates - making them safer and cleaner places. 

“We hope this set of WOW badges will help pupils understand that by walking to school they are playing their part in fighting climate change - protecting wildlife and natural habitats for the future.”
