As regular readers will remember I was excited to announce that Jet2holidays had launched a pretty spectacular nationwide competition to give some very lucky school children the chance to win the Ultimate School Trip, with the winners travelling to Sol Katmandu Park & Resort in Majorca to hang out with their school friends (as well as Dick & Dom!) on an all-expenses paid school trip.
To enter the competition pupils had to submit their own unique ideas on how to promote Sol Katmandu Park & Resort – be it a poster, poem, song, video or something else entirely.
Now, 45 schools (five schools from each of the nine UK regions) have been shortlisted and I’d really recommend checking out their stunning entries. There’s some really amazing, creative stuff there – stories, drawings, collages, crafted items, animations and videos…the list goes on.
The creativity and abilities of the students is just fantastic, and it’s so exciting to see what the next generation is already capable of, along with how naturally they can use a mix of new and old technology to create engaging content. Some entries are clever, some are funny, some are beautiful…and usually it’s a mix of a little bit of everything.
Celebrity judge Anthony Quinlan (of Emmerdale and Hollyoaks TV fame) must have had a tremendously difficult time deciding the shortlist – I know I was blown away by the talent on show.
Now the dust has settled, all 45 shortlisted schools have been awarded £1,000 worth of school equipment vouchers, and now it’s time for the public vote.
But you need to hurry as voting closes TOMORROW!!!!
