#MOLP3 is Now Open for Entries!

Watch our short animation below and get into the groove then click here to enter!

Now in its third year, #MOLP3 has an incredible prize fund of £3,000, which will be awarded in each category as follows:

  • First Prize – £1,000
  • Second Prize – £300
  • Third Prize – £100
  • Two Highly Commended – £50

We also plant a tree for every single entry we receive in Bore, Kenya and we’ll email you the GPS coordinates of it once the contest has closed and we’ve received confirmation of them from our Word Forest Coordinator, Ru Hartwell.

Additionally, your entry will also help fund the construction of another much needed new classroom at Kundeni Primary School in the same community – click here to see the one our previous contests built.

It is worthy of note that none of this would be possible without the kind support and sponsorship we’ve had from the guys at Bunaken Oasis Dive Resort.
