School sticker competition

Here is the my sticker design and the iPad I won!

I was pleased when I had the chance to enter my school’s stickers competition! I entered this completion because, as well as The Positive asking me if I wanted to, I also believed that I could do it well. Believing in yourself is key. I am used to making and creating things and I relate well to things that are happening in the world.

For this competition, children from schools across the country entered the school stickers competition by designing a sticker that they believed highlighted the issues they care about. It could be a cause, campaign or issue, such as: anti-smoking, drugs, bullying, racism, healthy eating and exercise or something unique to their local area.

To make the stickers I had to go on the school stickers website. Firstly, you chose which size you wanted the sticker, then you chose a design and a catchy strap line. I spent a long time thinking about the cause I wanted to promote. I wanted to make sure that it was something that people would remember. In the end I decided to have a sticker about helping global issues through local work.

Following my catchy headline, I wanted a picture that would stand out and match the words. I chose a picture that had one face that was unique and happy, in contrast to all the other faces that looked really different. Then I matched the colours of the picture with the words. I was pleased with my finished product, as it really clearly showed the message I was trying to convey. Once I had finished, I had to be very patient and wait for about three weeks to find out if I had won.

I found out that I had won when I got home from school. My mum told me that my design had been picked as the winner. I was so happy! I was chosen as the winner because the judges really liked my message that people should think about others as well as themselves, and that everyone can make a difference. They also liked the way I designed my sticker with a catchy strapline, so that people would remember it. I won an iPad and had 1,000 stickers made into my design for my school.

The next day at school I stood in front of my class and told everybody all about the competition and how I had won the iPad and the stickers. My teacher, Mrs Moss, was very pleased with me. The rest of the class asked questions about how I made the stickers. I showed the class the school stickers website on the interactive white board. Another class-mate asked more about the prizes I won and I showed them the stickers, explaining the meaning behind them. I was very proud to stand in front of the class because I was excited to share my achievements.

I really enjoyed making and designing the sticker, as it was really easy to do using the website’s clear instructions. I was honoured to win the competition, as it was nationwide so therefore anyone could have won it, however I was the lucky one!

Sharing the experience with my classmates and winning this competition has made me feel more motivated to enter more competitions. I hope that my classmates will adopt this positive outlook also.

Have you entered a competition and what have you won?
