Pupils have been given a chance to win a £750 prize and learn about their community’s history.
Students in Years 3 to 6 are invited to present a study about a piece of Wandsworth history to win Best Individual or Best Class prize.
The winning school for both categories will receive a £750 reward.
On top of this, the Best Individual will receive a £100 Amazon coupon, and Best Class a day out on trampolines or ice skates.
Last year’s winners, Alton Primary School, presented the history of the Alton Estate, one of the largest in the country.
Runners up, Brandlehow School, were commended for their project on how the school, a Grade-II listed building, was rebuilt after the war by famous architect Erno Goldfinger. Penwortham Primary School were also commended for their look at how shops have changed on the high street.
The awards ceremony will be held at the town hall in early July 2019.
Applicants should contact firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, June 7.
