For the second year in a row, we teamed up with Martin Kiszko, the UK’s green poet, to run a poetry competition for schools – and this year's theme was toilets.

We're excited to now be able to announce the winners, who've won their class a poetry workshop with Martin himself!

Five to seven-year-old group: Travis Searle – Silver toilet (PDF, 112 KB) >

Eight to 11-year-old group: Samuel Franks – Toilet tragedy (PDF, 149 KB) >

12 to 16-year-old group: Samantha Gibson – The Contrast (PDF, 190 KB) >

A big well done and thank to you everyone who took part!

Although the competition is now over for this year, you can still download the resources below to plan a lesson around safe water, taps and toilets, and to explore techniques for writing poetry.
