Show the adults what a really great classroom would look like and win £100

Building Design has extended the deadline for entries to our latest Junior Wonders sketching competition.

You now have until 7pm on Sunday to get your children’s pictures in.

This week’s theme is classrooms. Who better to ask to design the ideal classroom than the people who (normally) spend so much time there?

We have two age categories, the first for children aged 5-8 and the second for those aged 8-11. The contest is open to our international readers as well as those in the UK.

The best artworks will win a £100 gift voucher from art materials supplier Cowling & Wilcox.

The deadline for this Junior Wonders art competition is now Sunday March 7 at 7pm.

This week’s judge is Jane Duncan, former president of the RIBA.

Simply draw, paint or make your ideal classroom and in a few words tell us why. It can be as fun or innovative as you like.

How to enter this week’s competition:

Once your child has finished their drawing or painting, please click on the link below and log in with the email address of the parent/guardian (must be over the age of 18, as we will use these details to contact you about the child’s submission).

Once you are logged in, fill in the information fields on the online form and click on this week’s category of ‘classrooms’.

You’ll be asked to include:

  • your child’s full name
  • their age and date of birth
  • a name for their classroom
  • a short explanation – in their own words – of why this would be their dream classroom (no more than 100 words!). Please include this text in the online form, but you can additionally send in an image of your child’s hand-written explanation as an additional photo upload.

Then click on the upload button on the bottom of the form and attach a photograph that you have taken of your child’s drawing. Please name the image file clearly with your child’s name and a title for their picture.  

All drawings of classrooms should be uploaded by 7pm on Sunday, March 7.

Good luck!
