Surrey Day

Surrey Day

Children only!

For this year’s Surrey Day, Radio Surrey are looking for school children to sum up Surrey’s natural beauty in 60 seconds.

If you’re aged between 5 and 11, record a short piece of audio telling people what you love about Surrey’s nature or the challenges faced in the local environment.

You can be creative with your story, it could be read out-loud, in poem or in a mini news report.

It could be the beauty you’ve discovered during lockdown on a local walk or even in your own back-garden. Or it could be about the birds or wildlife you’ve seen.

How to enter

  • Record your 60 seconds entry as an .mp3 file.
  • Parents and guardians can email the recording to Please include the name and age of the child and a contact telephone number.

The winners will be announced on Surrey Day, on Saturday 1 May 2021.

Only one entry per person please and you must be aged between 5 – 11 years old on the closing date of Friday 16 April 2021 to enter this competition.

Entries will be open from Midnight Monday 22 March 2021 to Midnight on Friday 16 April 2021.

What happens next?

There are two trophies and two one-year family passes for the Surrey Wildlife Centre for the overall winners in each age range: 5-8 years old, 9-11 years old. There is also an Adopt a Hedgehog Gift pack for the 5-8 year olds and an Adopt an Otter Gift Pack for the 9-11 year olds, from the Surrey Wildlife Trust.

They’ll be two runners up in each category, who will each receive a certificate.

The winning entries will be played on BBC Radio Surrey.
