READY TO GET CREATIVE?

Our annual badge design competition gives pupils the chance to design the new 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, cycle or scoot to school at least once a week for a month earn a WOW badge, with a new one to collect each month across the year.

THEME

WALK FOR THE WORLD

Walk for the World will focus on the sustainability benefits of walking, highlighting how local actions can have positive global impacts. Pupils will be asked to consider the contribution that traffic pollution makes to carbon emissions and to research and draw wildlife or a natural habitat affected by climate change.

As we look ahead to COP26 in November, we hope the badge competition will help pupils understand how walking to school, instead of driving, is helping to fight climate change through lower vehicle emissions, protecting wildlife and natural habitats for the future.

Be big, bold and colourful! Diversity and originality are key to standing out from the crowd!
