Decision making competition

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Westmill Wind Farm Co-operative ran a competition for local primary school children to decide the name for their community-owned wind turbine. They held a ‘turbine naming ceremony’ during an Open Day event at the site, hosted by Korky Paul, a famous illustrator and author of Winnie the Witch, who handed out prizes to the winners of the naming competition. The prizes included signed copies of Korky Paul’s books kindly donated by Oxford Press University Press. The winning names were painted on to the turbines along with the logo of the schools the children were from.
