At Scotland's Enterprising Schools we've been thrilled to support teachers, parents and learners with distance learning through our online, country wide challenges. Over the two months we have ran fortnightly challenges, asking learners to use their enterprising skills to submit visual pitches for each design brief. Challenges so far have included: The Choccy Egg Challenge, The Fashion Challenge, and The Book Publishing Challenge.
All challenges are open to Primary and Secondary schools across Scotland with a winner from each category being announced at the end of the fortnight. We've been so impressed with the excellent ideas submitted, we just had to share some with you!
This Easter-themed challenge tasked learners with the task of becoming the marketing team at the struggling chocolate company, Chocorama. Our winner's were Zoe from Kilmaurs Primary School and Alana from Calderside Academy!
The Fashion Challenge tasked young learners to think about the Fashion industry sustainably, by creating their own eco-conscious fashion branding - including designing the store and creating taglines/slogans. Our winners from this challenge were Bonnie from Kilmaurs Primary School and Logan from Banff Academy!
The Book Publishing Challenge, tasks young learners to pitch an idea for a book that will tackle inequality. They must decide on an issue they'd like to tackle, design the cover, write a short synopsis and come up with an advertising strategy for the title.
We were especially excited about this one - our guest judge, Author and Publisher, Mary Thomson has kindly offered winners the chance to publish their book with Whitewater Publishing! Our winners from the Book Publishing Challenge were Calum from East Calder Primary School and Jenna from Clydeview Academy!
All upcoming challenges will be uploaded to the Home Learning section of our site. Keep a look out on our social media pages for any announcements.
All entrants will receive a workbook and participation certificate. Winners will be announced online and a sample of their work shared. See curriculum links in the download below.
