Lynn News and Greenyard Frozen competition goes COP26: design a vegetable from recycled materials
It is the sign that Christmas is really here for Lynn.
When the giant star on the Greenyard Frozen foods factory on Greenyard Way on the Hardwick Industrial Estate is lit up it can be seen for miles.
And in the past few years it has become a tradition that the Lynn News helps to find a child to have the honour of switching the star on.
Each year we like to set a different challenge. We have had essays on Christmas, designs for a superhero based on vegetables and posters.
As Greenyard Frozen is one of the country’s leading vegetable processing companies, vegetables have been a recurring theme and that seems particularly apt at this time of COP26 so this year the competition will have a sustainability theme to it.
We are asking entrants to design your favourite vegetable out of recycled materials. You could use things that usually go in the recycling bin at home (plastic bottles, cardboard or packaging) or could see what you can find out on a walk (such as leaves, fir, cones and pebbles).
It could be stunning spud, or a hi-tech pumpkin, a magnificent marrow or personalised peas. Let your imagination run riot. The bigger the better.
Send in a picture of your creation explaining what vegetable has been used. If you are chosen as the winner – make sure to bring it along on the day!
The star will be switched on by the winner at 4pm on Monday, December 6, so entrants must be available to be there on that day.
Entries must be submitted by Wednesday, December 1, and the winner will be told on Friday, December 3.
Your picture must be in the form of a jpg and be accompanied by the name and age of the child (maximum age 14), plus the name and contact details of a parent or guardian.
Please do not send to the Lynn News but to email@example.com
We want to see weird and wonderful, brash and bold! May the best vegetable prevail! Good luck.
