In partnership with the ESFA
The world-famous producers of sticker books and collectables has teamed up with the ESFA to provide teaching resources and opportunities to schools in England
The Panini Group was established over 50 years ago in Modena, Italy and with its subsidiaries throughout Europe, Latin America and North America, is the world brand leader in published collectables. With the educational reach of football being so varied and accessible, bringing Panini’s outstanding array of football stats, facts and figures into English schools, allows teachers and pupils alike to view the sport in a different and more varied way.
Register for the next Classroom Challenge
Win the biggest yet cash prize for your school with the ESFA & Panini’s Classroom Challenge for 2021
The Classroom Challenge continues in 2021 with a brand-new opportunity for your school to win a huge £3,000 cash with a ‘Design a Football’ competition – but hurry, there’s only 2,000 packs up for grabs!
January’s Classroom Challenge was cancelled due to the lockdown, but Panini and the ESFA were able to share 450 resources out to primary schools in England to help support the key worker and vulnerable children still attending schools. These resources were gratefully received by participating schools…but now it’s time to relaunch the competition for up to 2,000 schools to enjoy in April and May.
The Classroom Challenge returns with some exciting opportunities for your school
Registration is now closed for the chance to take part in the latest competition, putting your school in the running to win a huge £3,000 cash prize, a Panini assembly and trophy presentation, plus a £50 Amazon voucher and a football shirt for the winning pupil.
Those schools who have registered will receive sticker albums, sticker packets and a competition guide. 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!”
The Classroom Challenge competition is now open until 14 May 2021. All entries must be submitted electronically to email@example.com. The standards have been incredibly high in previous competitions and we can’t wait to see how creative school children in England can be!
What we’ve done before…
The first classroom challenge required primary school children to design a Panini sticker book album cover for the 2018 world cup alongside a world cup song and a match report of the children’s favorite historical world cup match. The following year the challenge involved designing a football shirt and was situated around Panini’s road to Euro’s 2020 campaign. The most recent classroom challenge involved designing a trophy. We received some amazing entries including that of the winner, Jack from Beckwithshaw Primary school seen below.
Good luck to all the schools that enter – we can’t wait to see your entries!
*Panini and the ESFA will follow Government Guidance and school policies in line with COVID-19 restrictions in terms of the presentation assembly
