Today we’re excited to announce the winner of our Earth Heroes poster competition! To celebrate the publication of Earth Heroes, by Lily Dyu – an inspiring collection celebrating the pioneering work of climate change activists around the world – we invited readers of The Week Junior to get creative and design a poster encouraging people to take action and save the planet.
We received hundreds of great entries focusing on important issues from recycling to reducing plastic use, saving water and protecting wildlife. We faced a tough decision, but we are delighted to announce that the winner is 7-year-old Mateo! His brilliant poster features a really strong, timely message and beautifully drawn animals.
Mateo will receive a signed copy of Earth Heroes and will be adopting a moon bear through the Born Free Foundation. His poster will also be published in The Week Junior and The Week Junior Science+Nature. He was delighted to win as he loves animals and is passionate about ecology.
