They had to start by choosing a problem or issue they wanted to try and resolve. Then they had to collaborate to come up with potential solutions and create a prototype, an advertisement and a jingle to advertise their product. Finally, this week the teams presented their ideas to a panel of judges.

All our children have done amazingly well, showing tremendous creativity, communication and collaboration; the judges were hugely impressed and had a serious challenge selecting the winners from such a strong field.

Nonetheless, we are delighted to announce:

  • Best Model: Lexi, Eliza, Romilly, Zara and Maisie
  • Best Advert and Jingle: Abbey, Lola, Vivi, Maddie and Tilda
  • Commended: Joe G, Hayden, Will S and Atilla, Oliver, Harry C, Hugo and Felix T
  • Winners: Lukey, Felix C, Zhenya and Arthur

The school’s winning team will now need to make a 2 minute video about their world changing idea to submit to 8 Billion Ideas and the Lions to be judged. They will then be involved in the virtual National Awards Day from 10:30 a.m. on 8th December 2021. This will be held over Zoom. We will be sending out the link shortly and we would like to encourage as many children and parents as possible to log in and watch online.

We would like to thank once again the Billingshurst Lions for giving our children this wonderful opportunity.
