      I would really like you to vote for me because I want to use the prize to create a box of resources for lots of scientists to share and take in to all the schools in the region, so the prize would benefit lots of young people.
      I would use the prize to get lots of fun resources to inspire kids with all types of science, like materials to make slime and tools to make small robots which students can program, as well as equipment and fun items like a space helmet for kids to learn about space exploration!

      I think you should just vote for whoever you’ve enjoyed talking to the most, so if that’s me then great!

      But if you were to vote for me then I would use the prize money to help organise field days for kids in my local area to learn more about the plants and insects we have in the woods around here. So I would focus more on learning about local nature and getting children engaged with that.

      I would love it so much if you could vote for me please!
      I have a great plan for how to use the prize money for schools, like yours, to get involved in science. My nieces and nephews gave me some ideas and helped me, so I know you will all love it. I will be visiting schools and setting up outdoor classrooms where we will learn about insects, trees, birds and flowers too. We will be going on a bug hunt, searching for trees, using binoculars to watch birds really close and planting our own plants to take home. I will also be bringing in some cool and crazy insects as well as having some fun with painting and plenty of mud!
      I am hoping to inspire young people, share knowledge and show everybody how fun and exciting science can be.
      P.s I will make sure I can come to your school if I win 😀
