Five Gold Coast primary schools have the chance to win a share of more than $2200 in cash and prizes for green initiatives at their school with thanks to a new competition partnership between local businesses Botanical Bazaar, Natura Education and Composta Australia.

“The competition is a small step in encouraging and educating kids and our community to be ambassadors for our environment for generations,” Natura Education’s Kieran Richardt says.

To enter, go to the “Gold Coast Kids Go Green” Facebook group page. Among other goodies, the prize also includes a visit to the winning school by gardening guru Costa Georgdis from Gardening Australia. Entries close August 10.
