Schools can get creative to win

Have your say

CREATIVE Wearside youngsters are being urged to let their design talents shine.

Students in Sunderland have just one month left to enter a competition to design a classroom of the future and win £2,500 worth of technology for their school including an LED TV, camera and laptop.

Children 16 and under are competing with pupils across the UK in the Classroom of the Future Competition, being run by schools supply company Viking and the British Institute of Interior Design.

The competition is judged in two categories, one for primary schools and one for secondary schools, and students enter by bringing to life their vision of how a classroom will look in the future.

A spokeswoman for the competition said as yet there have been very few entries from the city and they would love more children to take part.

The deadline for pupils to enter the competition is Friday, July 18, and for more information visit
