Sponsor a competition

Competitions can be specific to an age group or can run across multiple age groups. They are a great way to promote a brand to teachers, children and young people and their parents.

Our competitions reach a large number of people, attracting up to 5,000 entries from over 200 schools. Many more will engage with the resources which remain available on our website after the competition comes to an end.

If you're interested in sponsoring a competition, please contact our Partnerships Manager, Chris Greenfield, on
