Our annual badge design competition gives pupils the chance to design the 11 WOW badges. Last year, we had over 100,000 entries making it one of the biggest design competitions for children in the UK.
WOW is our year-round walk to school challenge. Those who walk to school at least once a week for a month earn a WOW badge. There are 11 to collect across the year.
Next year, we will be taking WOW pupils on a journey around the globe to celebrate some of the most breathtaking wonders of our beautiful planet.
We are looking for engaging and colourful depictions of the most beautiful natural and human-made creations; think waterfalls, coral reefs and mountains, but also temples, bridges and pyramids.
Diversity and originality are key, so encourage pupils to think beyond the well-known. Underwater caves? Wonderful constellations? The sky is the limit - literally!
FRIDAY, 6 MARCH 2020
The 11 winning designs will be turned into more than 400,000 badges - made from 100% recycled material - to be awarded to WOW pupils who walk, cycle, scoot or Park and Stride during 2020/21.
