Dulux Design Competition
Dulux is running an exciting competition throughout the UK aimed at young learners with a simple mission: to help teachers and children thrive through the power of design and colour in schools. The competition will get young learners putting pen to paper to generate their very own classroom designs and give us adults an honest look at the classroom from their eyes. Of course expect some inspirational designs, however these will give us a good feel for what we could do to help children make the most of their school day.
All you have to do is inspire your learners to choose an area of their school they want to redesign and let them get cracking. The most impressive designs – one from a primary school and one from a secondary school - will win £5,000 of design and decoration services. The two winning schools will work with Dulux design experts to turn their vision into reality but the benefits of this competition go beyond the prize. By involving your pupils in school design, you will engage them in a fun project, encourage teamwork, and bring your whole school community closer together.
When embarking on this project, here are some things we think you should remember:
- Creativity and functionality - how can you create ideas that are inspiring while also feasible in the constraints you have?
- Collaboration - how have you brought the rest of your school into the design process?
- Impact on school - how will your design suggestion positively impact your school?
