The 2018 Schools' Challenge

47 Primary, Secondary and Special Schools were involved in the Schools Challenge competition at the 2018 Lincolnshire Show. The Schools' Exhibition Hall was buzzing with enthusiastic and excited students all keen to show off their hard work and tremendous efforts.

The Schools’ Challenge has ten different challenges to choose from, all linked to the curriculum and designed to extend young people’s knowledge and understanding of food, farming and sustainability. The students have been working on their challenge projects within School before attending the Lincolnshire Show and presenting their challenge projects to a team of experts, whilst competing for the hard-fought title of Schools’ Challenge Champion for their particular category!

The Schools’ Challenge competition was kindly sponsored by Farmacy Plc, Branston Ltd, Beeswax Dyson Farming, The Farm Kitchen, Riseholme College, a part of Bishop Burton, Waterside Shopping Centre and The Willows Garden Centre and Restaurant.
