Trust Science: Help Make Essex Covid-Safe, A CSES Imagine! STEAM Competition

Trust Science: Help Make Essex Covid-Safe

A CSES Imagine! STEAM Competition

We are pleased to announce another online competition, hot on the heels of our CSES Imagine! Environmental Challenge and CSES Imagine! Plastic – Friend or Foe?

Vaccination is the only way that we are going to beat COVID-19 and get back to normal. But this only works if over 80% of people are vaccinated.

It is vital that the Covid-19 vaccination message is understood by your family and people who are worried, unsure, resist or reject being vaccinated.

Help us de-bunk myths, lies and fake news about the vaccine! If you are a primary, secondary or home-schooled pupil or student in Essex, CSES is challenging YOU to help beat Covid-19 and make Essex Covid-safe.

Imagine! how you would persuade people to get vaccinated. Design a poster or make your "call to action" Video and get your own message across. You could win a prize! And your video or poster will be published.

The deadline for entry is Friday 4 June 2021. Open to children and school students of all ages.

Read on to find out more about the competition and click here to register.
