PURE Mile are looking for groups, communities, individuals, schools, everyone and anyone, to take part in the 2018 PURE Mile Competition.
The aim of the competition is to clean up the Uplands, and PURE encourages communities in Wicklow to adopt a mile of road in their local area and keep it free from litter. Groups can also research information about their local flora and fauna, as well as their heritage and folklore.
Ian Davis, Project Manager of PURE, said: “the PURE Mile competition has been a great success and all credit goes to the communities, groups and individuals involved.
“The people that take part in the competition really make a difference to their areas and it would be great to see more people getting involved in the 2018 PURE Mile competition.”
Groups can focus on all aspects of the competition or just one. PURE are also encouraging Primary and Secondary School Students to enter the competition and do a class project related to a heritage or history project, or a clean-up.
All groups who enter are invited to the Awards Night, all will receive a Certification of Participation and a selection of Native Irish Trees, and will feature in the PURE Mile Calendar.
Each group will also be in with a chance of winning over €4,000 worth of prize money.
