Entries are pouring in for the Evening Times/British Gas competition that could make a Glasgow school greener, warmer and £135,000 better off.

There is just over a week to go before the closing date of January 14 for our Streets Ahead school eco-makeover competition.

We want to hear why your school – primary, nursery, secondary or assisted support for learning – should win the chance to become one of the most energy efficient in the country.

Our Streets Ahead campaign – which encourages people to work together to improve their environment – has teamed up with British Gas to offer an eco-makeover worth up to £135,000.

It is part of the company's Generation Green education programme, which is designed to help schools save energy and reduce their bills.

Kate Lemon, programme manager for British Gas Generation Green, said: "We are thrilled to be able to make this investment to help a school in Glasgow become one of the most energy efficient in the country.

"The aim of the programme is to help schools to manage their energy bills and inspire young people to be curious about the future of energy.

"So we hope the opportunity to have an energy makeover will help reduce costs and give pupils at the winning school a new way of learning about being sustainable and sharing what they learn with their community. The competition is open to all schools in Glasgow and I urge everyone to get involved."

A city council spokeswoman said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for a school or nursery and we're sure staff across the city will be entering the contest."

To enter, all you need to do is tell us in 50 words or less why your school deserves the prize.

The winning entry will benefit from energy-saving equipment and technologies, such as solar panels, advanced room thermostats, LED lighting and heat pumps.

Send your entry by e-mail to: generationgreen@bluerubicon.com

Make sure you include the following information: the name and address of the school; whether it is a nursery, ASL, primary or secondary; your name and relationship to the school; and why you think your school should win.

Closing date for entries is January 14 at noon.
