Win £2,000 cash for your school with the ESFA & Panini’s Classroom Challenge for 2021

The Classroom Challenge returns with some exciting opportunities for your school

The Classroom Challenge continues into 2021 with a brand-new opportunity for your school to win £2,000 cash with a ‘Design a Football’ competition – but hurry, there’s only 1,500 packs up for grabs!

For the chance to take part in the competition, putting your school in the running to win £2,000 cash, a Panini assembly and trophy presentation, plus a £50 Amazon voucher and a football shirt for the winning pupil. All you need to do is register your school via this link.

Aside from the fantastic Classroom Challenge competition, your school will also receive sticker albums, sticker packets and a competition guide, which you can use within your school. We have had some amazing feedback from teachers from across England on the benefits of receiving these goodies and entering our competitions – here are some of our favourites:

“Although we didn’t win, our children have absolutely loved taking part. The packs have gone down a storm and I’m constantly getting children coming up to me to show me which players they’ve got.”

“The packs have gone down very well in school. We had a few spares left over from the ones originally sent, which have made a fantastic motivational tool and prizes for outstanding work.”

“Thank you for organising this competition. Our sports-mad Y6 children really enjoyed the opportunity to design a trophy and challenge each other with the packs.”

“A really popular competition, thank you so much for organising it!”

To register, simply click here or follow the link at the bottom of the page and enter your details – but hurry, we only have 1,500 packs to send out and you only have until 14 December to register your school! The competition will run throughout January and we’re already excited to see the entries we’ll receive. The standards have been incredibly high in previous competitions and we love to see how creative school children in England can be!

The latest Classroom Challenge was won by Jack from Year 6 at Beckwithshaw Primary School in Harrogate after he created a fantastic trophy design, being chosen from over 3,500 entries! Beckwithshaw Primary School will now be presented with a cheque for £2,000 plus some fantastic prizes for Jack during an assembly hosted virtually by Panini in the coming weeks.

The ESFA are delighted to be able to share these Panini resources with primary schools in England and are already looking forward to seeing the quality of the latest Classroom Challenge designs!

ESFA Panini Classroom Challenge Winner Announced

The latest Classroom Challenge to ‘design a trophy’ has found a worthy winner!

Through the ESFA and Panini’s ongoing partnership, in September 2020, primary schools in England were invited to register to receive some Premier League Adrenalyn XL Trading Card goodies for their school, including worksheets with a competition to design a trophy for their school team, a club or an interest…the options were limitless! The competition prize was an incredible £2,000 cash for the winning school, plus a £50 Amazon voucher and football shirt for the winning pupil. To top it all off, winners also receive the option of a presentation assembly, which can be held virtually due to the current pandemic, for their school pupils.

Following a difficult judging process of over 3,500 entries with an incredibly high standard of work, the ESFA and Panini are delighted to announce that Beckwithshaw Community Primary School in Harrogate produced the winning entry thanks to Jack from year 6.

The ESFA judges were delighted with the quality of entries submitted from all participating schools and found the level of work that went into each of them was impressively high. As such, the ESFA and Panini also wanted to share two other designs, both of which were very close to the top spot!

Submitted by Jasper from All Saints Bedworth Primary School in Warwickshire and Aaron from Millfield Primary School in Norfolk – the judging panel were really impressed with the quality of design from these pupils.

We would like to thank Jack and all the pupils from Beckwithshaw Community Primary School, as well as all the other competing schools, for taking the time to enter this competition and providing us with such fantastic examples of artistic design by young students. The school are now set to receive their winning prizes!
