2021 AGAR ART COMPETITION SUBMISSIONS

To celebrate our 50th anniversary, we held an agar art competition.  We’ll plant a tree with the National Trust on behalf of every person that entered.

A massive thank you to everyone who took part in our first ever agar art competition, the standard of the entries was fantastic. There were a couple of themes amongst the entrants – animals and the NHS! We particularly enjoyed Sophie D’s elephant, who looked a little mischievous, and Jenny P’s rabbit. The microscope from Jayasingh J was also very impressive and intricate. It was also great to see several entries celebrating the fantastic work of the NHS, now in its 73rd year and at a time when it has faced perhaps it’s biggest challenge.

As always with these things, a winner has to be picked and because of the intricate use of several organisms which provided a colourful display of flowers, we would like to congratulate Megan W for her wonderful creation. Many congratulations to Megan and many thanks to all who entered.
