School stationary firm Maped Helix, based in Kingswinford, is running the Thank Your Teacher art competition as a way to thank teachers for their hard work during the coronavirus pandemic.

The firm is looking for children to create drawings of their teachers, with five winning entries being chosen to win an Oxford Metallics Premium Writing Gift Set.

The prize will also include a range of stationery suitable for the child’s class, such as colouring pens for younger winners and maths sets for older pupils, plus Maped Picnik water bottles.

The Thank Your Teacher portraits can be created from pencil, felt tips, crayons, chalk, glitter, paint or anything else the children would like to use.

Parents of children entering the competition should post the portraits on Facebook @MapedHelix or Instagram @maped_helix with the hashtag #ThankYourTeacher to be in with a chance of winning one of the five prizes for their teacher and class.

The deadline for entries is Monday, March 21
