Don’t forget to register your school today!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!” 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 challenge was a ‘Design a Football competition’ which ran throughout April and May 2021, saw over 8,000 entries from hundreds of schools across England. Linara from Fossdene Primary School was the winner of the challenge with her amazing design 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 Terms & Conditions Please find the competition rules and terms and conditions below.
