Book tokens up for grabs as children invited to draw their ‘Oxfordshire in 2050’

Children can win book tokens as part of a drawing competition for the Oxfordshire Plan 2050.

And the winning child’s design will feature in the final version of the Plan.

We’re asking primary school children to draw what they would like Oxfordshire to look like in 2050.

It could be a futuristic house, an exciting job in a new industry sector or a radical new mode of transport to get around. We want them to be as creative as possible.

It is part of our efforts to engage with young people about our Oxfordshire Plan 2050, which will set out aspirations for the county’s future and identify the sustainable growth needed to achieve a better quality of life for all.

We want young people to get involved because as the next generation they will be the ones potentially living and working in Oxfordshire by that time.

Cllr Lorraine Lindsay-Gale, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education & Cultural Services, urged school children to show off their creative skills.

She said: “Imagine what an exciting world we’ll be living in by 2050. Driverless cars could be a standard mode of transport and children might be whizzing about on hoverboards.

“Robots could be helping to keep our homes tidy and all sorts of futuristic buildings will have sprouted up in towns and villages across the county. I’d urge children to let their imaginations run wild and show us how they would like Oxfordshire to look in 2050.”

The winner as chosen by our independent judge will win £20 of book tokens and have their drawing published in our final Plan. Second place will win £10 of book tokens and third place will win £5 of book tokens.

Entries should be accompanied by the name, address and email/phone number of the child’s parent/guardian.

They should then be posted to: My Oxfordshire in 2050 competition, Oxfordshire Plan 2050 Team, Speedwell House, Speedwell St, Oxford OX1 1NE.

The deadline for entries is Friday 26 April.

Those interested can download the competition template to print off.
