Wellbeing Art Challenge

To celebrate the launch of Superbloom at The Tower of London we invited all schools that are officially part of the project to take part in the Wellbeing Art Challenge.

We challenged students to create a group artwork inspired by how gardens play a vital role in supporting nature and wellbeing - the wellbeing of human beings, other species or even the wellbeing of the whole planet.

One Winner and two Runners Up were chosen in each category:

  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Special schools

The Challengers

Schools entered as Challengers from all around the UK, from Kent to Cumbria, and from Newcastle to Northern Ireland! At the bottom of this page you can find links to see all 47 amazing entries.
