Design an Ad: Register your school for the chance to win £500

Education | Published: | Last Updated:

Are you a primary school in the Black Country or Staffordshire? Then we need you!

Register now and your school could win £500

After 15 successful years the Express & Star has again launched its popular Design an Ad competition.

We need all interested teachers or headteachers to register their interest now using the form below.

How does it work?

Every school taking part will be teamed up with a local business who advertises in the Express & Star and pupils will be tasked with creating an original advertisement for their designated company.

Each company will pick its favourite design, which will then be featured in an eight-page colour supplement printed in the Express & Star.

From this shortlist, readers will vote for their favourite and every pupil whose design is featured in the supplement will be invited to a special presentation ceremony at The Grand Theatre where they will be given a certificate and get to meet all of the other winners and their sponsors.

Every participating school will receive a £50 achievement award, plus the chance to win £500 if their advert is judged the winner.

Last year almost 1,000 children from across the region put crayon to paper and created some superb designs.


Every advertiser was delighted with the pupils' creativity and we're confident this year can be even better.

Places are limited, so fill out the form below for your chance to take part.
