BioDive Competition – Terms & Conditions


Applegreen is giving three primary schools in the Republic of Ireland a chance to win a grand prize of  a school biodiversity garden worth €10,000 by participating in the Applegreen BioDive Competition.

10 runner up primary schools in the Republic of Ireland will have a chance to win a biodiversity  workshop delivered by Biodiversity in Schools (subject to then-current Covid-19 situation), and all  confirmed participating schools will receive a Biodiversity pack containing educational resources for  the classroom.

Applications to participate in the Applegreen BioDive competition can be made from 17 January  2022 to 04 February 2022.



Participation is limited to 124 primary schools in the Republic of Ireland, [on a first-come, first-served  basis]. Applegreen’s decision as to confirmed eligible schools is final.

To register your school’s interest, complete the application form available at Only one application may be submitted per school.  Applegreen will contact successful confirmed eligible schools and will send a BioDive pack to the 124  selected participating schools. Completing an application form will constitute entry into the  competition.

The poster can be completed by affixing all 120 unique collectible stickers, which will feature  photography of and facts relating to Ireland’s native species. One pack of stickers can be collected in  Applegreen stores in the Republic of Ireland with every in-store shop purchase with a value of at  least €5 (fuel-only, tobacco, alcohol and lottery item purchases are excluded). Stickers are subject to  availability. Only one pack of stickers may be collected per transaction.

When the poster is completed with all 120 unique collectible stickers, each school should complete  the entry form (which includes a knowledge test) and upload an image of the completed BioDive  poster on the BioDive page at by no later than April 29th, 2022.

The knowledge test on the entry form must be completed by a pupil in the participating class,  nominated by the class teacher. The pupil must complete the knowledge test within 10 minutes. No  assistance may be provided to the pupil and the school’s board of management is required to ensure  compliance with these terms.

Applegreen will accept partially completed posters with the entry form, provided the knowledge test  is completed and correctly answered. All confirmed eligible schools who return a completed entry  form with a correctly completed knowledge test will be entered into the prize draw, even if the poster  is not fully completed and/or returned. Incomplete entry forms and/or incorrectly completed  knowledge tests will be considered invalid and will not be entered into the draw. Applegreen’s  decision as to whether an entry form (including the knowledge test) has been correctly completed is  final. Only one entry may be submitted per school.

Late, illegible and/or incomplete entries are not eligible for entry into the prize draw and will be  deemed invalid. It is the responsibility of the school to ensure that entries are received by Applegreen  before the deadline. Applegreen will not be responsible for any technical or other failure that results  in an entry not being received or properly recorded by Applegreen.

The prize draw will be held in May 2022, supervised by an independent observer.

Each winner will be notified after the draw to arrange collection or delivery of their prize. If Applegreen cannot contact any winner or the winner does not claim within one month of the prize draw taking  place, then this may result in forfeiture of the prize and Applegreen reserves the right to select an  alternative winner in accordance with these Procedures and Rules. Only one prize may be won per  school.

All confirmed participating schools that return an entry form will receive a Biodiversity pack containing  educational resources for the classroom.
