Is there a Hidden Hero hiding in your community? An inspirational person who has gone the extra mile to improve the environment?
Maybe they’ve done something amazing to make their community greener, like the eco-friendly Greenhill Primary School near Caerphilly in Wales.
The school generates its own electricity from the wind and the sun, harvests rainwater and has the top energy efficiency rating.
That’s why Greenhill Primary School has signed up to WWF’s Earth Hour and is supporting Hidden Heroes. You can find out more about their efforts to be green in their wonderful video.
The school’s headteacher, Mrs. Gaynor Anstice, said:
“We’re proud of everything we do here to help the environment – but we know we’re not alone. Earth Hour is a great opportunity to celebrate the steps people are taking – from supporting renewable energy to improving recycling facilities or simply encouraging others to cut their energy use. We’re glad to support WWF’s search for ‘hidden heroes’ who are taking action for a brighter future.”
To nominate your Hidden Hero, all you have to do is tell us about the positive difference they have made on our simple online entry form by 4 March. There are three categories: individuals, schools or youth groups and workplace.
Winners of the competition will receive a £500 cash prize to support a green initiative of their choice and will be invited to receive their award and celebrate Earth Hour at an exclusive ceremony in central London on 23 March.
