The ESFA and Panini were delighted to visit Oliver from year 6 at St Gilbert’s RC Primary School in Manchester last month, to present his prizes for winning the 2022 Classroom Challenge, based on the Premier League Official Sticker Collection 2022.
The design-a-football boot competition, which ran throughout January, saw a staggering 10,000 entries from hundreds of schools across England, in what would be the most popular Classroom Challenge to date. Oliver’s design saw him win a presentation from Panini, where he was awarded with a £2,000 cheque for his school, a £50 Amazon voucher for himself, plus a football shirt of his choice.
Nick Clark, Special Project Editor for Panini UK said, “We were astounded by the number of entries received for the ‘Design a Football’ competition, the quality and hard work that pupils put into their designs was incredible. Oliver’s winning boot was wonderfully imaginative and certainly impressed our judging panel. A big well done to Oliver and the school for winning, it was an honour to visit the school and present them with their prizes.”
