To All Primary Schools and Secondary Schools:
Hen Harrier Ireland is organising a competition entitled "Celebrating our Hen Harriers".
Hen Harriers have been found in the Irish countryside for thousands of years and they are one of the most spectacular birds in nature, with their acrobatic sky dances and awesome food passes! It is time to celebrate the Hen Harrier as a special bird, that represents a living countryside, with farming, Grouse, Curlew, Skylarks and much more.
We have lots of great prizes, including the following:
- A pair of excellent Minox 10x25 binoculars (first prize Secondary Schools)
- A digital camera (first prize Primary Schools)
- The opportunity for students and an accompanying adult to watch Hen Harriers in the wild (first prize Primary and Secondary Schools)
- Collins Bird Guides (runner up prizes Primary and Secondary Schools)

Through your school teacher or parent, send a short story (limit 2000 words), poem or original artwork about Hen Harriers in Ireland to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to www.facebook.com/henharrierirerland before 01 June 2015 and include your name, class/year and school address.
