A group of five pupils from Skegness Infant Academy visited the Bentley Hotel in Lincoln on Wednesday, July 3, to attend the Lincs Environmental Awards.
The pupils made an eight minute presentation to the panel of judges, led by Dr David Bellamy.
They spoke about the development of the Academies outdoor environment and their part in the project, the trips they have been on, the visitors that have been invited into the Academy and also about the sustainability work undertaken by the Pupil Council.
The Lincolnshire Environmentalist Awards was organised by the Lindum Rotary Club, in partnership with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
The Young Environmentalist award was sponsored by FCC Environment and there were 21 entries in this section which the Infant Academy were nominated for, before the entries were shortlisted to the final four and schools were invited to the award ceremony.
