LAS Schools' Challenge

Organised by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, the Lincolnshire Show Schools' Challenge is open to all schools, early year establishments and external clubs, groups and associations in Greater Lincolnshire.

There are ten challenges to choose from and their focus is on inspiring young people to gain a better understanding of Lincolnshire's rich agricultural history, it's horticulture and land-based activities. To be involved in the Schools' Challenge, choose from one of our exciting challenges to join us at the Lincolnshire Show.

The challenges are designed to link food, farming, the local community, the environment and sustainability to the National Curriculum and we hope you enjoy embedding the challenge projects into your learning. Schools’ Challenge is student led and encourages them to research their ideas and present their findings at The Lincolnshire Show, competing for Schools’ Challenge Champion.

Each challenge has a suggested key for the type of project:

  • Potential to simplify for Early Years and SEN
  • A longer project involving planting/growing
  • A quicker project

All challenges can be extended or simplified, get in touch for support.
