It usually takes 1-3 weeks to complete, and teams can look forward to a variety of goodies and
prizes when they’re finished.
For the more intrepid, there’s the Gold Leaf level, in which children can get together to take
on a number of in-depth challenges over the course of 6-9 weeks. There are designed to demonstrate
the global impact of the food they eat, the goods they buy and the energy they use.
There are fantastic prizes available for each team as they work through the challenges, and
there’s even the chance to become national champion and earn £1,000.
You can find out more from the
Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools
challenge website, including how to register your school.
The Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge is part of
Sky Rainforest Rescue, Sky’s campaign with WWF to
help save one billion trees in the Amazon rainforest.
